Several couples of damselflies come to be posed on this water lily! The male is above, the female in lower part. The female lays by depositing its eggs on the water lily or directly in water!
this is a very beautiful scene of life!
I have try to do an artistic photo (with the reflects in water)!
In a WS , I have done more sharp.

have a good end-of-day !

Hi Brigitte. I have never seen so many pairs on the one flower. WEll seen and taken . with good detail and a grat refection in the water. All with natural colours. I have had a look at the Workshop and its a lot sharper. wel ldone TFS.

Bonjour Brigitte,

Une curieuse scène, très bien géré. superbement composées. Très bonne manipulation de la lumière, permettant une très belle surface.

Beau cadre, très approprié pour tous.

Je l'aime un peu plus de la netteté WS permet de mieux apprécier les détails. ,-)




Hello Brigitte,

Fantastic artistic photo.
Splendid composition.
Good note.

Ciao Brigitte, how much maiting damselfly, superb capture of wonderful scene, very well done, ciao Silvio

Great interest here Brigitte, this one has that something special..
I think the WS is an improvement, just needs the right touch of NR.
Nice catch :)

What a shot, my dear friend!
You've got an eye for detail, Brigitte!
Very well presented composition!

This is something new, a community ritual :-) wonderful natural history and 5/5 for that, but on the nit side the picture is bit dark and soft, I feel you could have used a fill in flash

Hi Brigitte,

Superb capture of this beautiful momment. Nicely composed with the details and the reflections. Good Focus and very nice clarity.

Bonjour Brigitte !
Wow, je n'avais encore jamais vu autant de Demoiselles réunies en un seul et même endroit ! C'est très impressionnant ! J'aime beaucoup les couleurs de cette image, aussi, très douces, dans les tons bleu et gris, puis ce joli nénuphar jaune vif qui fait un très beau contraste. La composition est très belle, c'est bien que tu aies gardé les relfets sur l'eau en entier. Vraiment très réussi ! Félicitations !
