This is delightful: worth two images in you competition with Greg! :))
I like the POV and the free-hanging female in this image of two C. pulchellum in copulo taken with excellent sharpness and hanging on the unusual spiny leaf is an added bonus.
A real goodie and thanks for sharing this,

The Dragonolympics 2008. Must be a lot of identification work concerning the athletes:-)
I don't know what discipline this is but it's certainly well photographed and done at a decisive moment.
Thanks and greetings,

It's incredible what you two guys can produce! One image more beautiful than the other, more spectacular like the one you present us today! It also could be titled "The circus acrobats". That's what they remember me: aerial acrobats. I imagine that your job when you try to catch them sometimes is acrobatic, too.

Congrats on Number 19
You and Red Greg amaze me that you can find so many D'flies in your 'neck of the woods'.
I've always liked these brilliant blue ones Horia. And I have never them in NZ.
Get out there this weekend now

Excellent capture of these beautiful insects - great detail and isolation from the BG. Since I joined TN I have become aware of just how small and abundant these are - however - I still have not photographed one!!

Great! Fight still goes on :-)
This picture is beautifully composed! Twisted leaf and two damselflies look great on green BG. Very clear and sharp. Pose is typical for mating damselflies - I saw similiar scenes so many times this year :-) New specie to me - congratulations my friend!

i never tire of seeing thi type of image, and i know that there's alot of patience and skill that goes into getting them.
As always you give you subjects the best background, and reproduced the colours and detail with great clarity - good work my friend, hope you doig ok and not working too hard :o)
Excellent work mf. I could not have done this better myself..
Well maybe if I nit pick :) I might've removed those two stray spots I see BG upper right.
You may feel I'm picking on you Horia, but I've tried to treat everyone the same on TN.. Although it doesn't always work ;-}

Very beautiful capture of these Coenagrions in a lovely pose on the leaf. Excellent focus, sharp details and true colours. I really like the green colour of the background and the composition is excellent.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
