They are lovely shots which allow us to share their world on an appropriate level. I have watched large reds mating and ovipositing but like you never seen emergence. Of all of the damsels they are...

Well done, a sane move.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Those are wonderful. The eye on the bug is exquisite. And the proboscis too.

I have no idea how you get the depth of focus you do with the high magnification. I applaud all of the macro...

A lovely sight and picture

It is a cornflower, a once common part of the cornfield alongside poppies and some much scarcer and lovely wild flowers. But as most UK fields are dosed with herbicides...

Re: Steady, you'll have someone's eye out with that!

That is fantastic. Exceptional sharpness and definition, and great behaviour.

Re: Echinopsis Hybrid Razzle Dazzle (Form)
