Macro with quietness

Sometimes ... I find a bug strangely "calm" and I can make a "Macro with quietness" ... that's when I can play with my compact, with zoom, manual focus, the F openings, even with the saturation of colors!...
Really funny moments!

This is the case of this tiny (very tiny) damselfly (1,1/2 inches long!)

It's a shame that not all bugs here, are thus appeased!
Most seem to rush all the time!

I have no ID, but I hope you like it!

Thanks by stop and visit, nice week for all in TN!

Hola Jesus

Buen mimetismo por parte de esta pequeña libelula con esa planta seca. Una bonita composición y perfecta nitidez.

Un saludo de Antonio

Ciao Jesus, magnifica libellula, beato te che ti stanno ferme, io oggi ne ho viste due senza riuscire a fotografarle, che non si posavano mai, gran bella macro, ottima nitidezza e splendidi dettagli, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hello Jesus,
a very special shot. The dragonfly looks like a statue.
Very sharp and very clear. The brown image and the branch stands out nicely in good lighting.


Good day friend Jesus! Nice to see from you that little damselfly taken from a perfect parallel position. Unfortunately the compact cameras even at f/3,2 can not produce breathtaking dept of field as those of the larger sensor DSLRs in fact f/3.2 (for example)from the currently used Focal length 8.2mm in your camera is equivalent to focal length of 44mm and aperture of f/18 on my full frame DSLR! Interesting isn't it? My advice is never go above f/3.2 after that for example at f/4 a Diffraction is start to effect the quality of the image! Enough boring lecture, ... good photo with perfect clarity and flawless composition! Bravo Jesus! Bravo!
