Well composed close up pic you have posted here. I especially like the DOF and blurred BG, it gives the subject more detail and it stands out. Sharpness, lighting and POV also well done.

Beautiful composition, Thorsten!
Sharp image with excellent lightness and perfect POV; splendid colours and very nice contrast with a clean background. Very well done!

Hallo Thorsten
This is a great macro with details beautifully captured. The sharpness is impressive, the acrobatic pose of the Damselfly super and the overall presentation very pleasant. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
