[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Damselfly nymphs are aquatic, and prey on small aquatic insects or other aquatic larvae. The adult damselflies prey on small flying insects, caught using their legs like a basket to scoop the prey up while flying, or insects taken from leaves.

Best regards

Hello Jozsef,
A very good macro shot of this pair damselfly in mating,Great POV,colors and fine details.TFS.

Not the best depth of field but perhaps, pleasant point of view with clean colors and good detail on the focus area friend Szabo! I believe that you are a great perfectionist, and this image does not reflect fully your potentials my friend! Happy New Year !

Hello Jozsef,
Very nice photo these mating damselflies. A pity that the lower one is moving its wings. The rest is sharp in focus. Beautiful natural colours and a good composition.
Fine plain BG.

A beautiful shot of the Damflies mating!!! Nice colours and bg!!!!

Hello Szabo,
A beautiful composition showing this pair of damsels very sharply in focus on the grass. Great sharpness and beautiful natural colours against the soft background.

TFS and best wishes, UllA
