[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken in late morning sunlight. Nikon D70 camera, 1/40th shutter and F5.6. 200mm Sigma lens. No tripod, and I was just lucky to get it sharp in focus. Is the background too busy even though blurred?

Nice one Martin. This is a damselfly not a dragonfly. I don't know the species, you'll have to look it up.

Excellent sharp image and great lighting. The background is busy but the subject is very clear, you have to snap these things where you see them. Well done.

Very nice one Martin
Welcome on TN with you first photo. I like it, it's nice, sharp, and the colours and the dof are very good, very good first job.

Welcome on TN Martin. - Very nice first post with plenty of details in the wings and I like the droplets on the stalk. Colours are nice as well as the composition.

Good picture. I don't think the background is disturbing. Good colors and sharpness. Nice with the drop of waters on the plant as well on the damselfly.
