Pyrrhosoma nymphula - Large Red Damsel.

By cdm36  
Sorry another one , this time a larege red. Smile.

Had got another which I liked a little more as the sun was causing the red on the body to really glow but the tail was slightly oof and I'm fussy, lol

Taken at a new location, bit windy on the day which made finding them a little difficult but did have the benefit of keeping them static.

Iso 200. 1/320 Sec @ f5

That is very nice Chris, good detail and well composed, the large version is well worth looking at.

Yep, very nicely done Chris, as Terry say's. You certainly nailed this one, I'd say everything is just about spot on.
Be off out myself in a couple of hours to see if I can find some chasers etc, so watch this space as they say....

Excellent focus and love the depth of field. Exposure is spot on and I like the composition with the diagonal twig.
