[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Damselflies (suborder Zygoptera) are insects in the order Odonata. Damselflies are similar to dragonflies, but the adults can be differentiated by the fact that the wings of most damselflies are held along, and parallel to, the body when at rest. Furthermore, the hindwing of the damselfly is essentially similar to the forewing, while the hindwing of the dragonfly broadens near the base. Damselflies are also usually smaller, weaker fliers than dragonflies, and their eyes are separated.

Hello Francisco
A portentous approach and you have managed very well the light here. These damselflies are insects with a truly beautiful structure, like the colors. Good job of trimming and composition!
Regards, TFS

Hello Francisco

An excellent macro. the detail is overwhelming and the composition very tight to obtain the detail. Looks like the 105mm macro lens is working for you.

Hi Francisco,
Very beautiful coloured and sharp detailed photo of this dragonfly. Great composition. Well done!
