This is incredible! Stunning details, absolutely perfect POV and DOF. I love the background because I can see how well he blends into his environment. Excellent composition and sharpness.

A great macro of this dragonfly Felipe.
That 'stain' on the eye is very unusual.
I certainly don't know this species either.
An excellent capture anyway. Hope you find the ID OK.

Excellent closeup Felipe, I like the head-on POV & comp here..
The colors, details, and flashwork are impeccable :)
What's going on with its eye?..Looks like it may have been injured then..
He may need to see a specialist for that ;-}}
Have a nice weekend,

hola Felipe, excelente detalle. Una toma nitida y con buena luz. Un saludo.
Good to see you posting again. I'm really surprised - new picture, but old cam :-) Superb face to face POV, great details. It is very hard to ID insect from this POV, I didn't find anything similiar in my books.

Outstanding macro shot with immaculate sharpness and lovely colours. The compounded eyes look great and I like the details captured on the face and wings. Nice pose captured and this frontal POV makes a superb view. Very skilful use of flash lighting and the composition is magnificent. Kudos.

Hello my friends
What a beautiful capture here! I don't remember seen this species before on TN, so thanks for sharing really :)
I'll help you with the ID: it's a Boyeria irene female - or the Western spectre.
It's a realy beauty, too and apparently it was kind enough with you and let you take lots of nice and different picture :)
Very good sharpness and flash work, excellent with the DOF and colors...in all the shots you've presented us.
Bravo and TFS

among the many dragonfly shots on TN this one stands out for originality, interest and for the rare species Boyeria irene. The species shuns sunlight and stays in the shadow, it is easily overlooked. The quality of your pic is outstanding, the flash a real help.
