Anax imperator(Leach,1815)
UK: Emperor Blue dragonfly
DK: Stor Kejserguldsmed
FR: Anax empereur
NL: Grote keizerlibel



Males have a green thorax with a pair of blue transverse, oblique, blue bands on each side immediately in front of the forewings. There are a pair of blue longitudinal bands running down the length of the abdomen on either side of a black central band.
Females are very similarly patterned but are green throughout although their green abdominal bands may become blue with age.
Of all the large dragonflies, this species is most closely associated with still water and spends most of its time patrolling its territory, settling periodically on marginal vegetation. It is shy and easily disturbed at rest. It often takes its prey, caught in flight, onto adjacent grasslands or shrubs to eat. This species is usually immediately identifiable by the way its abdomen is slightly down-curved in flight. Females lay their eggs in submerged or floating vegetation.

Hello Sergio.

Great shot of the Anax emperor. Your picture shows all details very well, with very nice colors.
They are beautiful.

Ciao Sergio,

Quasi come prima, anche se tale accordo e utilizzato ogni ulteriori tagli di tutti i giorni. Penso che anche ha sfruttato la temperatura dei colori in modo diverso, dando tutta la tonalitÓ molto interessante.

Si tratta di un lavoro molto buono, le tue foto di libellule sono diventati veri e propri compendio di tecnica e di gusto.

Hi Sergio,
I never had the chance to see a sitting Anax imperator. Only saw them flying.
Yours is very impressive, I like that shot very much. Thanks and have a nice sunday

Ciao Sergio,
altra bellissima macro dai dettagli impressionanti ed una ricerca di prospettive particolari, riesci ad ottenere una buona profonditÓ di campo anche con un diaframma 6,3, (usi il treppiede?) con un'ottima definizione ed una perfetta messa a fuoco, in questa immagine mi piacciono molto i dettagli delle zampe che hanno anche una colorazione straodinariamente bella.
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio

hello

Hello Sergio,
Excellent macro with fine details and wonderful natural colours.
Very good sharpness.
Marius.

Ciao Sergione,eccezzionale nitidezza e grande macro,forse solo il colore e' troppo tendente al freddo...ci voleva una piccola scaldatina,tutto e' verdastro ed e' un peccato..comunque molto molto bella...meriti 8 punti ma 3 li diamo all'arbitro e quindi te ne restano 5.....buona settimana,Luciano

Hello Sergio,
An impressive macro showing very fine sharp details of this elegant dragonfly. I love the colours too!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Ciao Sergio. Non concordo con quanto dice Luciano.... A mio parere i colori sono riprodotti fedelmente. Gestione della luce eccellente e ottimo sharp.

This photo gives me something to aim for. I love dragonflies and this photo shows this one in beautiful detail. TFS
