This subject is really my favourite and this year I planned to have a little project to take photos of damsel and dragonflies with various camera set-ups. Unfortunately I had only few days during this summer but taking photos of this Calopteryx virgo specimen was the highlight of it (next year I'm planning to take more photos on this subject). Thank you Yildiz for your efforts to organize this challenge and for your thorough evaluations.



Well deserved, Marcell. :D

It's a pleasure to study such beautiful and intriguing creatures. And you had some good samples indeed. When Andy said that your Damselfly looked as though it was carved out of a gemstone, he was not very far from the truth. : )
Good luck for next year when you go on a new photo spree for your next project. Hope you share the results with us as well. : )


Thanks,

Yildiz

Thanks! I will share them here I promise. I have a picture in mind I want to take. A relatively big dragonfly covered by morning dew-drops. I woke up this year three times without luck. Maybe next year.

Good idea, Marcell; : )

Hope that photo gets realized as you picture it in your mind. Good luck!

Looking forward to what happens with regards to this quest.

Thanks,
