J'ai bien aimé ce face-à-face pratiquement bichromatique, en rouge et vert. Cette espèce est un mâle du genre Diplacodes, qui chasse essentiellement à l'affût, restant perché le plus clair de son temps puis s'envolant en un éclair pour capturer tout ce qui passe dans son champs de vision.

I liked this practically bichromatic face-to-face, in red and green. This species is a male of the Diplacodes genus, which drives out primarily with the mounting, remaining perched most clearly of its time then flying away in a flash to capture all that passes in its field of vision.

Hope you like it!

Hello Emmanuel,
the colours, the clear focus and the particular depth of field make the charme of this picture.
Best wishes, Peter

Salut Emmanuel
This is really charming! Indeed the rad and the green go great one near the other and look terrific here in your photo.
The full-fronal POV here is excelletn and the sharpness ove the details is impeccable.
I also like the shallow DOF you used here, that also blurred the BG completely, making it wonderful.
The exposure and flash managements are fantastic and the overall composition that resulted is superb!

Bravo, my friend and TFS

Hello Emmanuel
Very nice shot of Odonata,
Perfect focusing on head,
I'd rather more close up :-)

Hello emmanuel Great shot from this libelle ,beatifull compositie colours pov details light sharpnes and the green bg ,Greetings Teunie .

Phantastic picture, Emmanuel.
By strictly reduced composition, a well perceived powerful bichromatic colour contrast, a wise application of shallow depth of field you have turned the frontal capture of a tropical dragonfly resting on Equisetum into an exquisite and unique work of art.
With thanks, and best regards,
