Beautiful Demoiselle

By RockArea  
Hi to you all!

I've been a way too long, the earlier part of the year was just too busy to take care of all the things I like to do so although there was plenty of photography going on, ePz had to take a back seat. I'm intending to try to keep up with your portfolios once again.

I'll start off with one from my recent trip to France, a different sort of shot from my normal choice. These beautiful demoiselles were sunning themselves on the hedge by our pitch in Tarn et Garonne. I didn't have a macro lens with me so the 28-300VR had to do. I took quite a few shots to get this one which I'm reasonably pleased with for a non-macro photographer.

Thanks for your attention, your comments are always gratefully received.


My thanks to mikeakabigman for letting me know that this is a Beautiful Demoiselle and not a Banded as I'd thought.

A cracking detailed close-up David - I'd be more than 'reasonably pleased' if this were mine! Smile
