Large red damselfly
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Large red damselflies (Pyrrhosoma nymphula) are widespread and common in Britain, they are also one of the first species to be seen in the spring. |
In this shot the male is clasping the female while resting on vegetation. It was a cloudy and dull day which made it a bit easier to approach the damselflies even though it didn't make for a particularly bright image.
Taken with the addition of a 1.7 teleconverter.

Hi Steve !
A perfect contrast of color and an exceptional player.
A beautiful evening,
Good detail and depth, could use just a bit more light and contrast. Nice macro shot.
