First of all congrats for 100th post. Knowing that u have taken this shot from 2.5 meter and that also with crisp clearity, full marks to this one.Great details, specially eyes and legs. Sopt on focusing on head part. Composition is great. Its like he is just want to fly away from that post. Wish you very best for your journey and hope climate changes soon so that we would get to see your great images as usual.

Hi Ivan and congratulation for your milestone post!
This is really a great event and you celebrated it with a wonderful picture!
This damselfly is very beautiful here! I really like the details here - very clear and sharp especially on the head and body, where every single hair is visible!
Also, the colors, tones and reflection are amazing as well as the lighting.
Very nice POV, DOF and composition, too!
Bravo, TFS and keep them comming :)

Congratulaciones Ivan por las 100 presentaciones!
Una interesante imagen de esta especie siempre tan atractiva por sus maravillosos colores, bien capturados aquí.
Me gusta el punto de vista captado, con la belleza del insecto muy bien iluminado y el bonus de la sombra que colabora con la estética de la presentación.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo
Congratulations Ivan for the 100 presentations!
An interesting image of this species always so attractive for their wonderful colors, very captured here.
I like the captured point of view, with the beauty of the insect very well illuminated and the bonus of the shade that collaborates with the aesthetics of the presentation.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo

A superb picture taken from 2.5 meters and hand-held. Incredible sharpness and exposure. Thanks for sharing this well done picture. Congratualtions for your 100th post and looking forward for more of your fine pictures.

what I think I learn from this very succesful shot is as follows: you could do it hand-held, you held your flash in hand as well, you had no second light source or reflector.
Right? So I have something to try next summer.
Thanks for sharing,

My best wishes for your 100th post and many thanks for your contribution at TN by wonderful pictures, nice notes and interesting comments.
I like this shot as many-many others your pictures so much. Amazing diagonal composition, excellent colours and sharpness of the insect, great reproduction of its texture and texture of the leaf, wonderful lighting and its reflection into dragonfly's eyes. Bravo, my friend, and good luck.

An excellent capture worthy of your 100th post, Ivan. Congratulations!
You have apparently set your targets on the frontal portion of the Demoiselle and done a great job. I am riveted on the clear colours and details in focus and cast a second look at the shadow only after reading your note. Frankly, shadow does not interest me in this picture.
Wishing you the best for your next 100!

if it's up to me it's just the beginning and I'd like to see a lot more of your pictures here on TN. You choose one of my favorite damselflies as your 100th post. Not far from my house runs a stream and in summertime it's full of banded demoiselles. Great metallic colours and sharp details. Keep on going!!
Best regards, JAcob

My compliments first of all for the posting - may you do another hundred. Secondly for the shot that is in my opiniopn stunning. Fantastic colours and pin sharp detail make it outstanding. Even the shadows help in making it so pleasing to the eye. I particularly like the diagonal framing of the insect that makes the compo so effective.

very beautiful capture, perfectly focussed, splendid colours - what a well shown iridescence! Very beautiful blinking light enhanced by the shadow of body on the leaf.
Congratulations to this shot, perfectly fitting for the special occasion. Thank you and congratulations for 100 postings!

and an interesting shot of the flyer with wings folded...
the head and thorax are really sharp and i think what makes it so immediate are the dark tones against the green background.
didnt notice the shadow being of any distraction..fine as it is..you could have shortened it a bit so it didnt touch the edge of the frame..?
