Hello Hernan,

It seems you have captured a rare Dragonfly. I haven't heard about this species before. I like such BG for Dragonfly, Damselfly or Butterfly. Good details and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing with useful NOTE,
Regards and have s nice Sunday tomorrow,

Hi Hernan,the top of perfection to show us this rare dragonfly,fantastic perspective,details and colors,my best compliments for the difficult identification too.Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

I don't master Macro.
This picture makes me jealous.

Good to see you after some lapse of time, Hernan.
This species of dragonflies has some special features like a set of long legs and vivid colours on the compound eye.
Though tail segmentation is not clear, it looks like a male of the species to me.
Very well captured image with natural colours.

Hello Hernan,

TOP shot altogether , beautiful.

Thanks for sharing.

a very delicate pic with fine colors and nice posture of the insect. Thanks for showing

Hola Hernan
En Mexico les decimos caraballos a estos insectos.
El foco es perfecto y por lo tanto, los detalles a apreciar.
Buen trabajo

Una foto preciosa de esta bella libélula Hernán! Se parece a unas que tenemos aquí en España pero se ve que es diferente. Te ha quedado muy bien con un fondo estupendo. Enhorabuena por la foto y muchas gracias por la información que añades en el texto sobre la Universidad de Puget Sound, la consultaré.
Un cordial saludo.
