Hi everybody

This is a Ruby Meadowhawk ,it has dark wing veins and a yellow to brownish face but is very similar to Cherry-faced Meadowhawk. As a rule, Ruby has more color in the inner wing, but the two cannot safely be distinguished without careful study of the claspers and secondary genitalia. It is, however, our most common Sympetrum and should be found statewide.

Hope you like it.

Hola Behrad, preciosa macro y agradables detalles y nitidez, buen pov... saludos

Hello Behrad,
Nice sharp detail of the head, thorax, and legs. Good colors, comp, POV, and the BG is great as well..Slight OE from the front or lit side is the only nit.
Well done & TFS.

Hello Behard,
This is a CLOSE-UP!!! :) Details are very good and I like this POV and composition. There are some little OE spots but it is still a very good picture with great colors and a superb pose from this nice insect :-) Thanks,
