Fantastic macro, Harm. The details and light are excellent. I really like the way you cropped this shot. Beautiful patterns on the body. Well done and TFS. : )

Hi Harm,
A marvellous and fascinating close-up of the the rare Gomphus flavipes you provided us with earlier! I did some WorkShop on it according to my suggestions on your previous shot,

Mooi macro shot. Zeer scherp. Ben benieuwd hoe dicht bij je moest staan om de foto te nemen. Hebt wel zo ongeveer de beste macro lens. Moet ik nog even voor door sparen.

Hi Harm,
super super super, this way it looks more dangerous than yesterday, remembering me to a wasp, also yellow and black stripes.
The eyes are interesting, like if some milk is inside. Excellent sharpness as usual, a wonderful shot. Thank you very much, bye

Hi Harm, nice shot! havent seen this guy around but its worth looking for, hope a little sunshine tomorrow will do. Reina

Great close up of this unusual dragonfly, at least around here. I like the natural looking colour and POV. I think it is asking for a frame :)
Regards and thanks for posting.

Great macro, Harm! Good cropped, beautiful sharpness, and pretty "model" :) Also I like green tones of blurred BG. Very well done.
Best wishes.

Hello Harm,

bonjour Harm , dommage dommage .....deux fois parceque 1)le problème de Canon c'est la luminosité ( très senssible )là vous n'y ete pour rien .. et 2)la prise de vue trop serrée , à moins que ce soit les yeux qui auraient du être mis en valeur ! mais alors la "macro " est ratée ... avec un 180 mm f/3 vous pouviez visé plus large et nous aurions eus la Libellule en entier ce qui n'aurait en rien enlevé la netteté
Sympathie didou

Not bad at all, more contrast wouldve been helpfull!

Hi Harm,
Nice to see this rare dragonfly.
It's a a bit lack of contrast but still a nice picture.
Well done.

Hi Harm, good sharpness.

Oh! what a picture!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He/she (?), is magnificent!!!!! I never get any this good, and I try and try!
