Orthemis aequilibris Calvert, 1909

Today I have no Lepidoptera! ... Today I have a beautiful red dragonfly (Odonata) that I found yesterday in my garden!

This photo was made a bit like "playing" with my Olympus bridge and the versatile fill flash, but there are more "conventional" photos (shoted with my "lovely" Canon compact) in WORKSHOP:

(WS view 1)
(WS view 2)

Thanks by stop and visit!

Hi Jesus,

I love the game you played! You were the winner. An amazing macro of this beautifully colored dragonfly. I love the golden head and the sparkling wings. The details are fantastic. Great shots in the workshop too - especially view 1.


Hola Jesús

Vaya te has apuntado a los supermacros, y ademas con muy buen nivel de nitidez, un recorte muy bien tratado. Perfecto.

Un saludo de Antonio

Hello Jesus,
I really like the way you've framed this beautiful dragonfly - different and very beautiful! Since we don't have any pink dragonflies here this one is very special and really fantastic! I like all three images, all very sharp and well composed.
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla

Far out I've never seen a dragonfly quite this colour befor(or I have but I can't remember it). Its amazing anyhow.
Fantastic clarity & detail too.
Great work.

Hello Jesus,
Very beautiful photo of this dragonfly. Fantastic sharpness, details and choice of POV and composition. Beautiful colours with a nice contrasting dark BG. The photos in the workshops are also beauties.

Hi Jesus,
A nice capture and strange view framed but I like this. Very good sharp details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

hello Jesús

excellent close-up photo of this red dragonfly, with as
always superbly focused great sharpness and details, TFS


Cualquiera de las tres fotos podría ser la portada.
Nunca habia visto una libélula de este color, parece que está rellena de zumo de arándanos :) Es una belleza.
El recorte combina perfecto con el angulo ligeramente girado.
Un placer para la vista.

hello Jesus

Hallo Jesus
This is a super shot. No it is not super it is excellent. The image as a whole is perfect and I do not have to point out any negative comments as there aren’t any. Wow it is a great macro, and the dragonfly has the most gorgeous detail and colours. The point of view is just great. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
