Platycnemis pennipes
Blue Featherleg

The Blue Featherleg is a fairly large damselfly. It's a very common and widespread species throughout Europe except in Iberia (where it is replaced by the White and Orange Featherlegs) and parts of the British Isles and Scandinavia. Characteristically for the species in this genus, male Platycnemis pennipes have wide, white shins. The male abdomen is a pale blue. Females are a creamy white which with time darkens to become orangey brown. Other distinguishing features include the male's blue eyes, the double antehumeral stripes and the uniformly-coloured golden pterostigma.

Hallo Sergio
Excellent macro. Very good colours and wonderful perspective. Very sharp details that are well seen. I love the clarity of the black stripes on the dragonfly's thorax and also the way it is grasping onto the flower bud. The white flowers complement this scene beautifully. A perfect match of colours. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Sergio!

You present us a beautiful picture. The insect is so delicate. The focus is on the right place and the great sharpness reveals rich details. Both, the insect and the flower, form a superb couple and create a very pleasant view.

Kind regards


Ciao Sergio. Ottimo lavoro di gestione della luce che rischiava di fare danni. Benissimo nitidezza e dettglio.


Hola Sergio

Un saludo de Antonio

Hello Sergio,
Nice and unusual composition of the whitish female pennipes together with the whitish daisy flowers. Fine sharpness where needed against a pleasing BG.
Thanks and kind regards,

Ciao Sergio, splendida damigella dolcemente posata fra i fiori. Ottimo il momento che hai colto e che hai ripreso in maniera perfetta. Un saluto, paolo
