Peek-a-boo damsel

By Gomez
Another from this years jaunt to Glen Trool.

Taken in August, on a warm day, down at the Dragonfly pond. Don't know if it has a proper name, but the place is hoaching with all kinds of insects, the majority of which are dragonfly.

This is an Emerald Damselfly, taking a break for a few minutes, on the edge of the pond.

Cropped and sharpened slightly using High Pass (hard light).

ISO 200, 1/125sec, f/14.

Love the composition of this one - really puts the bug in context and the colours are brilliant.

I reckon it's the lines that work here - twig, wings, leaves all criss-crossing.... I like this a lot.
