for my friends who do not go on TN, I wanted, in spite of the very late hour to also present to you this insect not diffused much on these sites.
the GOMPHE, it is a species of large yellow dragonfly. there are several kinds of GOMPHE and I hope not to be mistaken by saying to you that this one is the gomphe has hooks.
I thus a few moments ago published on TN the same insect, finally perhaps his brother bus not taken the same day.
I advise you to see the site that I propose to you, although this one does not give us an information enormously.
good night has you, good Sunday and thank you for your comments. voir ici

Bonsoir Edith!
Wow! Quelle photo!! Belle macro et les couleurs sont vraiment superbes.

Good evening Edith

Lovely capture, superb clarity and colour. I think I might have been tempted to do a yellow drop shadow on a black frame though to highlight the yellow body. I feel the way you have it the frame is fighting with the insect for attention. IMHO

Brill shot though

TFS regards Helen

An excellent macro photography. Dominating yellow and green tones in the presence of high contrast is looking exciting. Fine detials and good light. Well done Edith.
