[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Dew is water in the form of droplets that appears on thin, exposed objects in the morning or evening. As the exposed surface cools by radiating its heat, atmospheric moisture condenses at a rate greater than that at which it can evaporate, resulting in the formation of water droplets.

When temperatures are low enough, dew takes the form of ice; this form is called frost.

Because dew is related to the temperature of surfaces, in late summer it is formed most easily on surfaces which are not warmed by conducted heat from deep ground, such as grass, leaves, railings, car roofs, and bridges.

Hallo Sergio
This is soooooooo beautiful. Not only the damselfly with its soft blue colours and markings on its body, or the lovely greenish flower it is resting on, but the water droplets adds a magic touch to it and the natural sunlight in the picture is just Wow! I like this one a lot. Great photography, just great. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Ciao Sergio,
le goccioline di rugiada costituiscono l'elemento spettacolare, ma credo che la luce sia quello determinante per la riuscita di questa bellissima macro, molto bello anche il taglio compositivo
