Well captured Ann

Think it is a Broad Bodied Chaser and Common Blue Damselfly, if I am wrong Ade will let me know! V1 could do with a touch more contrast, it would just add the finishing touches to a very good capture, the Damselfly is exposed excellently as the whites normally blow out, love the pattern and texture of the wood, my fav today.

Regards

Trev.

I think it is a Common Darter and it is a fine pin sharp capture.

Two rather stunning macro photographs depicting this rather gorgeous Dragon Fly and Damsel Fly, stunning natural colour and exquisite detail running throughout.

question, why do they nearly always have their back turned upon you


Ann it's an unwritten law that insects...and birds etc....have to be as awkward as possible....

Wow 2 great images ...captured all the great detail in both insects.
Love the low pov in V1 ...sets her off against the good clear b/g.

Not much luck for me this year as there's not a lot about...I don't think they know what season it is.

Two excellent efforts Ann, you should be very pleased with these. I haven't seen many dragonflies around this year apart from the few that wouldn't settle at Woorgreens Lake in the Forest of Dean when I was there with Gary and Ade at the end of last month
