[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
DRAGONFLY HATCHING FROM THE LARVAE SKIN (Exuvia)


Difficult to tell which species it is. The dragonfly was quite small, about 4-5cm. May be a White-legged Damselfly. Amazing to see the small size of the wings

A critical and significant moment in the life cycle of a Damselfly, Anne. It is a lucky occasion for a nature photographer and you have made the best of it. The new creature emerging out of exuvia is still half way inside and struggling to liberate itself from its confines. The eyes are well marked but the wings are still compressed.
Super fine details on both the Damselfly and its exuvia. DOF is excellent.
Thanks.

Very interesting to see this scene of nature in action. A little more DOF would have been beneficial, but it is a wonderful image overall.

Hello Anne,
What a neat capture of this damselfly as it emerges from it's exoskeleton. Something that happens every day, but rarely witnessed. Excellent detail, beautiful color and just the right exposure.

Hello Anne,

Liebe Anne,
ein selten zu beobachtender, sehr berührender Moment, in zarten Farben und guten Details bei wenig Licht mit viel Geduld festgehalten.
Hatte genau dies vor Jahren an einem Seeufer in Kärnten sitzend an drei dicht benachbarten Stellen zugleich beobachtet. Dann kam das Linienschiff vom anderen Seeufer in der Nähe an, legte wieder ab, erzeugte hohen Wellengang am Ufer - und weggespült waren zwei der drei noch halb geschlüpften Libellen.
Die dritte entging mit Glück den Wellen, entfaltete endlich ihre Flügel, hob sich - noch etwas unbeholfen flatternd - in die Luft, es war bezaubernd. Nach vielleicht zehn Metern jenes Jungfernfluges kam plötzlich ein kleiner Vogel herangeschossen, schnappte die zarte Libelle in der Luft - und weg war auch diese. C'est la vie.
Wie stark Deine Bilder wirken und vergessene Erinnerungen wachrufen ...
Mit Dank und herzlichem Gruss aus dem subtropisch dampfenden, von Gewitterwolken verhangenen frühsommerlichen Wien,
Peter

this is very nice to see Anne
good sharpness and great details
thanks gr lou
