Oh, you were referring to the heart shape formed by these mating damsels in your caption, Peter.
The image is simply beautiful.

A very unique scene that you has catched!
Great for the overall sharpness and clear details on the insect's couple.
And of course, that pose by wich the heart is formed is just magnificent.
My compliments and thanks for share it.
PD: On my Safari's browser F11 hides all the open applications and let's see the desktop. But I would love to isolate the image, it worths to.

Beautiful capture of a pair of P. nymphula in cop. Excellent sharpness and lighting from the side and pleasing blurred green BG.
This, together with a fine composition, make it a first class shot.
TFS and have a good weekend,

A really classic capture of these two! Excellent POV from which you've got both beautifully in focus in very nice light. Great sharpness and natural colours.
Very beautiful composition!!

Sehr schön präsentiert sich hier das Libellenrad, wirklich ein richtiges Herz. Gute Schärfe auf diesen feinen Adonisibellen, nicht einfach zu realisieren. Auch symbolisch ein schönes Bild.

Anther splendid macro photo from you!
This is a great catch and a superb moment, with a very charming species. Unfortunately there are very few records of this species in my country, although i'd lovee to see one in real life one day... :)
The focus and DOF here is impeccable and as a result both of the damsels are shown with impressive details and sharpness.
The exposure was nicely managed and all the colors and tones are gorgeous.
As a suggestion i might add that a very little fill-in flash would have helped you to get better details and textures in the shadowed areas...but that really doesn't change the fact that this is a splendid shot :)
BRAVO and TFS
