bonjour a tous.
si nous sommes reuni en ce jour dans la maison de dieu,c'est poue celebrer le mariage de monsieur et mademoiselle calopteryx splendens!!!
bon d'accord,j'ai un peu poussé le destin en les plaçant là face a face.comment?rien de plus simple il suffit de vous lever avant eux,lorsque le soleil n'a pas encore rechauffé leurs ailes,on les prend delicatement et le tour est joué,enfin presque il faut encore prendre la photo.
photo prise sur trepied,pas recoupée,juste accentuée.

Hello Laurent,
Terrific capture of these two beauties having a rendez-vous! Excellent and very well-timed shot showing great sharpness and lovely colours. The lovely colour of the flower petal and the light grey background makes it a very beautiful composition. Well done!
Many thanks, Ulla

Bonjour Laurent,
Oui, c'est vraiment de toute beauté, même si la main humaine a aidé un peu à la mise en scène. Je ne savais pas que l'on pouvait ainsi facilement les manipuler. Mariage spendens, image splendide

Bonjour,
Belle composition bien mise en page. On pourrait croire qu'elles se causent !
Bonne journée.

Bonjour Laurent,
Clever placing of these two damselflies while they were inactive. A good way to present M. et Mm. C splendens!
Excellent sharpness and composition using your tripod and flash.
For me the only thing that spoils it is the frame, but others lie it and it is of course, a matter of taste.
Merci et au revoir,
Ivan

Salut Laurent

Très belle photo en macro. Tout y est. La lumière, les couleurs et la netteté.La presentation est tres belle.Tu leurs offrent même un cour de dance.

Bravo et merci...JP

Woooow - such a great luck to see this beautiful couple on the pretty flower - excellent work, my friend, I love it, thanks
Sabine - wishngaruda

What a theatrical moment you have captured this lovely pair of damselflies in, Laurent!
Looks like they are holding "hands" in an intense love scene.
Presumably, the one on the right is the male, though one can't be certain.
An amazingly beautiful capture. The focus is razor sharp and the metallic colours on their bodies look just great.

WOW! What a stunning picture!!
How did you do to capture them together?
Gorgeous!
I like a lot the composition and the presentation.
Magnificent sharpness with great details and nice colors. I like a lot the texture on the petals with all their nerves and the bright bodies and eyes of both damselflies.
Congratulations, Laurent. I'm pleasantly impressed.

Bonjour Laurent,
Je suis jaloux, je ne suis pas capable de photographier une libellule et vous vous en captez superbement deux. C'est génial cette pose où elles se tiennent par la main ;-) Techniquement et esthétiquement c'est top. Dans le cadre, c'est Miss or Misses qu'il fallait ?
Compliments mon ami.

Hello Laurent!
What an amazing picture! Fantastic capture withe great timing! I really do not know how lucky you were to do such photo! :)
Great composition with beauty colours!

Hi Laurent.
Great capture two sexes in one shot.Both with perfect sharp details as well as on flower.I like beautiful composition,Nice POV and very good DOF.Colors are amazing with interesting mettalic effect on both insects.Excellent your macro work.
Thanks,with greeting Milos.

Merveilleuse scène, détails fabuleux et couleurs très riches.
Bravo

Salut Laurent,
Wow! Qu'elle capture originale et esthétique! J'adore cette composition, les détails et les teintes de couleurs. Il est très intéressant de les voir ensemble comme ça avec leur différentes couleurs qui sont bien saturées et brillantes. Je n'ai pas vu une libellule encore cette année... En fait, à part quand je vais camper sur le bord des lacs l'été, je n'en vois pas beaucoup dans ma région et je n'ai jamais réussi un photo potable. Merci!

Bufff, que bonita !! ya no solo por los colores, composición y enfoque, sino por su gran expresividad. Es una de esas fotos que se salen de la norma y de las modas y se distinguen por la idea, oportunidad y buen hacer: enhorabuena Laurent por esta gran foto !!!

Hi, Laurent.
Great macro! Nice handshaking action and excellent sharpness. Beautiful setting too.
