About the Image(s)

This is a very common Pacific Foxtail Damselfly. The image was taken last week near a pond.
1/1250; f 7.1; iso 1000 with Sony 6300 with adapted Caonon 100 mm macrolens. Some croppingand sharpening in Photoshop. Fortunate to get the shadow also.

Hi Neil: Good subject well placed in the frame, very sharp detail on the subject; the wing structure is very well presented. In my humble opinion the light green out of focus background leaves are very light and need to be toned down so they does not compete with the Damselfly for attention. An interesting aspect is the leaf structure in the shadow under the Damselfly shows up very well and creates another point of interest.   Posted: 05/10/2020 21:31:19

Hi Neal, nice clarity as usual. The Damselfly has nice detail and color. I agree with Murphy on the leaf. Nice presentation.   Posted: 05/17/2020 07:30:35

REALLY HARD FOR ME TO GET THESE LITTLE BUGS, SO MY HAT IS OFF TO YOU ON A GOOD CAPTURE.IT IS WELL POSITIONED AND THE TWO DIAGONAL LINES THAT OF THE DAMSEL AND THE VEIN OF THE LEAF KEEPS ME CENTERED ON THE SUBJECT. AND WHEN I LOOK AT THE SHADOW I CAN EVEN SEE THE LACE OF THE WINGS SO NICE AND SHARP.   Posted: 05/17/2020 19:47:11
