I like the vertical framing. I fills the whole frame and the detail is very good. Beautiful metallic colours.

Do you have woodpeckers in your garden and on your birdtable? Yesterday one feasted on my birdtable fighting for a spot with the doves and the starlings.
If you have please photo.My chap had a beautiful red spot on his head.

Hello!
Many thanks for your very kind comment on my blog, how sweet
This damsel is Calopteryx virgo, adult female.
Great shot in focus although the light was low! Excellent work, especially that got it with open wings.
Cheers and have a great day!

Beautiful photo, nature is wonderful:) Greetings

Frank said...

Superb photography on your blog.

From the wing colouration etc. I think your 'green dragonfly' is a female Beautiful Demoiselle (Calopterix virgo).

I will be following you from now on.

It turns out that it is a Demoiselle Giga, but I agree with you that it is a beautiful colour, the first green one I had ever photographed, so I was very pleased to get this shot:=)

Thank you Maria:) The blue eyes and green body, with just a suggestion of red is a good combination.

It could have been a juvenile Great Spotted,a Middle Spotted, or a juvenile Syrian Woodpecker.

In October last year I posted The Woodland Woodpecker. I see them every day and have taken dozens of photos.

Joke ( Jokes Camera)
Thank you Joke:) I was pleased that it was a sharp image. It's beauty deserved to be shown in detail.

Breathtaking said...

Noushka
Thank you so much for coming, and giving me the info. I will post the correct name this evening:)

You are right about the light. It was in the deep shade of my Bougainvillea vine, and I had to lighten it a little to be able to see the beautiful metalic green colour.
