Ciao Roberto,
tu sai che le libellule mi piacciono molto e questa è davvero splendida ( è una specie che non ho mai fotografato).
Grande il POV, ottima la nitidezza e bellissimi i colori; molto belli anche lo sfondo verde e la posizione ad ali aperte.
Complimenti per la cattura.
Saluti
Enrico

Ciao Roberto!
Che splendore! La luce, con i suoi riflessi, esalta i colori metallici della libellula e la trasparenza delle sue ali. Dettagli e nitidezza al top.
Altra meravigliosa composizione.
Peccato che su TN ci siano troppi ciechi!
Ciao Roberto e buona domenica! Vanda
