In the hot season there are so many, close to the water lines... This it's an Ischnura elegans, one of the most little dragonflys.

Thanks for looking!

Hello Joao,
The damselfly bears its name with right it is very elegant. This is an impressive shot. Excellent sharpness and great DOF. The colors and details are wonderful. Very well composed.

Hello Joao,
Brilliantly captured of this damsel. Crisp clear picture and great color contrast.

Hi Joao,

Nice composition for this delicate and hard to photograph subject. Good detail, colours and sharpness. Pleasant neutral background.

One suggestion: the blurred twig on the top left part of the image is distracting. Try cloning it out, you will see that your dragonfly will look even more beautiful. Smile.


Excelente foto João!
Sei da grande dificuldade que é tirar uma boa foto a esta espécie tão pequena e manter o DOF e a focagem perfeitos. Basta uma leve brisa para arruinar a foto.
Parabéns pela brilhante composição, detalhes e o lindo contraste das cores.

Um abraço.
