hi Nicholas,good picture of this demoiselle,well done
A superb photo again..you have a complete understanding of how to capture these river side friends.
Do you use a flash? I ask as the highlights on the nettle and demoiselles wings have bright highlights to suggest to me you do.

Hi Nick, I'm jealous when I see your wonderful damsel, so sharp, so close, so pretty.
I also saw this one some days ago, but it never gave me the chance to come closer, always flying away. Thanks and greetings

the dragonfly is well captured here with exact focus and pretty good sharpness. Point of view and excellent geometric and colour composition make the picture very attractive.
Best wishes, Peter

How nicely presented today at least, with the two of them facing each other. Very wonderful creatures and you put a bit of life into them, the photos I mean of course, for the profiled has it's own life. Great job.

Very beautiful image again of this, atleast in my opinion, most wonderful of all damselflies.
Love the steel blue and green glowing colors, the beautiful patterns and big black spots of the wings.
Sharpness and exposure are perfect and the way the Demoiselle does stand ot against the green color tones of the leaaf is great.
Thanks for sharing and the good note.
Best wishes and good night.
