Good portrait of this colorful damselfly. tfs.

Hallo Jozsef,
a very good macro shot, fine details and perfect flash exposure, excellent point of view and composition

Excellent contrast of blue sky with this blue Damsel. Iridescent wing pattern catches my eye and amazing how the branch color is muted yet the Damsel so crisp. Simply superb
