This one is dedicated to Krzysiek [Cataclysta] - man, summer is still strong around here :-)

I was on small walk to Botanic Garden today. Temperature was around 20C+, very sunny day, no wind. Perfect condition for macro shots. I was walking around few small ponda chasind damselflies. Here you can see one very busy couple :-)

Hi Greg

Aparently the cold times are not there for the staying in Europe :) That makes me a very happy man and gives me hope to photograph some more animals after i get home.

This is a splendid macro shot of this Lestes pair. Unfortunately i don't have the fieldguide here with me so that i can tell you the exact species.
Anyway, i really love what you managed to do here with only f/4.5. The sharpness is impeccable and the composition is wonderful.
The colors are also magnificent and i love the way the brighter BG brings out the damsels even better.
A true beauty in every aspect.

Nice capture of these mating damsels (oops,that makes them sound like lesbos;)
Good compositin and colour.
Super duper!

Bardzo dobry, bardzo czysty kadr, świetna kolorystyka i bardzo ładny, delikatny rysunek. Ostrość jak zawsze wsaniała, a światło wręcz rewelacyjne!
