Here we see a couple of the Ruddy Darter during the oviposition. It was not easy to get a reasaonable result of this in-flight shot. Hope you like it.

You can find more informations about this species here.

Hier sieht man eine Aufnahme der Blutroten Heidelibelle während der Eiablage. Es war nich ganz einfach die Libellen im Flug einigermaßen scharf abzubilden. Ich hoffe das Bild gefällt.

Mehr Informationen von dieser Libellenart findet man hier.

Hello Helmut,
Very difficult to take a good photo of these darters in flight, but you succeeded very well. Very nice sharpness and beautiful bright colours. Excellent composition.

Hallo Helmut,
Immer wieder ein herrlicher Anblick, eine so tolle Libelle aus der Nähe zu sehen...
Ganz klasse!
Gruss Georg

Hi Helmut, Very nice capture of these inflight Darters not easy im sure, sharpness is fine, splendid exposure/white balance with lovely rich colours, Perhaps the noise level is a little loud Hmmm, however a fabulous attempt Helmut and well done,


Hi Helmut,
A very good shot of these dragonfly in-flight! very well focus, great sharpness and nice contrasting against the background,
Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening,
Best Regards,

Hello Helmut,
Difficult capture with amazing POV and very good clarity.
The details, colors and focus are great.
Thanks for sharing!

and...YOU DID IT! WOW great capture...laying eggs in FLIGHT? you do work for national geographic right? this is amazing

did a workshop only to magnify what i think you are discussing in regards to the "Here we see a couple of the Ruddy Darter during the oviposition" a m a z i n g (circled it in pink)

Its amazing that you got such a good result with such a relatively slow speed. Very good clear photo and details. regards yiannis

Helmut, this is a very good shot of these dragonflies in flight. Very hard shot to get. It has great sharpness and detail. Good POV and bokeh. Have a great week, Bill

Ciao Helmut,
Great timing here!... Shoted with correct POV and well balanced light and colors, despite the difficult dark green in BG, ypu've made a good contrast level.
