Calopteryx virgo padana female

Insecta
Odonata
Zygoptera
Calopterygidae
Calopteryx virgo padana (Conci, 1956)


Le Calopteryx sono vivacemente colorate ed hanno un volo un po' traballante, che ricorda le farfalle diurne. Le forme preimmaginali hanno un aspetto smilzo e zampe assai lunghe. Durante l'ovodeposizione, che non viene accompagnata dal maschio, può immergersi completamente in acqua. Lo sviluppo dura due anni. La C. virgo presenta maschi con corpo blu verde metallico e femmine verdi, con ali, rispetto alla specie Calopèteryx splendens caprai, più larghe e totalmente colorate. Questa specie sembra aver risentito in maniera molto più marcata della precedente del peggioramento generalizzato della qualità dei corsi d'acqua; comune e assai diffuso fino agli inizi degli anni '80, è attualmente in notevole calo, tanto da essere considerata minacciata.

Ciao Paolo!
Bellissima composizione, con uno sfondo fantastico. Hai colto la damigella in una posizione che fa venire in mente una ginnasta sulla trave (visto il posatoio):)) Meravigliosa la luce che proietta deliziosi riflessi sul soggetto. Eccellenti anche i dettagli.
Complimenti e grazie.
Ciao! Vanda

Ciao Paolo,
una bellissima macro, straordinari i dettagli delle ali, splendidi colori naturali, magnifica composizione; è sempre un piacere rivedere queste libellule che mi richiamano alla mente i loro voli fluttuanti durante le nostre fotograficamente "produttive" uscite.
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio

Immagine bellissima, Paolo!
Il soggetto è ripreso con una luce fantastica che evidenzia la fine reticolatura delle ali e i magnifici colori lucenti del corpo; la posa ad ali sollevate è super; ottimi nitidezza e dettaglio; sfondo MOLTO bello.
Un caro saluto
