Such fabulous detail. How to you get them to pose for you? 🙂
I make soothing noises. 😉
The colours are so beautiful. Quite unexpected.
Thank you, Colline.
Wow ! Great macro, Mike.
Reblogged this on urbanperegrines.
I have a special interest in damsels, Mike, and applaud your results with this one. What a truly beautiful portrait! Have you been able to identify it? I’m currently with extended family in North Carolina, but I have a NorthWoods (Minnesota, etc.) damsel book that I’ll consult when I’m back.
Thanks, Gary. The common blue and brown hawker, I think.
Hi, Mike, late again–it looks very much like a female sedge sprite (Nehallenia irene), especially if it was really small, about an inch long. I can’t find the name “blue and brown hawker” in my book of Damselflies of the North Woods. Maybe they don’t live here.
Wonderful shot. Just wondering which lens you used for this.
Thank you. I shot this image through a EFS 60 mm f2.8 macro lens, Julia.
