Hello - again an Upload for the Hunt:
Abandoned Building

OK, it's another interpretation - but the building in front of the dragonfly is realy abandoned now.

It was such an impressive moment to see the dragonfly's eclosion. The body in front of her is her old skin, just came out one hour ago.
It's a Southern Hawker (Aeshna cyanea),
Blaugrüne Mosaikjungfer

If you like ot see this moment, please click here.

I hope you like my shot and if somebody minds about the Hunt-theme, please let me know.

Thanks for any words, bye.

Hallo Sabine,
ich habe nicht so viel Glück gehabt wie Du bei der Libelle, ich konnte auch nicht warten bis sie komplett aus der Puppe rauskommt,(Eva hat mit Mittagbrot gewartet). Ein brillantes Bild mit wunderbaren Schärfe, Details und Farben.
Schöne Grüsse

Hallo W.
ganz schones Bilder und auch eine gute POV!

Hi Sabine,

Perfect macro, such amazing detail, great colors and excellent composition. Perfect work!

Hi Sabine,

Great macro shot. You captured with great detail. I still have problem taking macro shot, and you showed me to set diafragm quite high (f/25). I'll do test with you way of setting the camera.

Hallo Sabine,
schon unglaublich was uns die natur alles bietet,
zum Glueck haben wir dich und deine super Makroaufnahmen damit wir diese kleinen Wunder nicht verpassen.
Klasse detailsaufnahme, herrlich scharf und die Details sind super.

beautiful macro instruction, I like such interesting photographs, I often go back to them.

oops, ok, erst lesen, dann denken.*g*
sah zuerst so aus, als hätte sich die hübsche libelle was hässliches zum fressen besorgt,
aber nein, sie ist da gerade erst rausgeschlüpft...klasse erwischt! kann ich da nur sagen, tolles macro, das diesen einzigartigen moment perfekt zeigt.
viele grüße & bis bald, thor.

(bin die nächsten 2 wochen wieder noch weniger hier, viel stress, aber positiv, hoffe ich, mit
3 mega-concerten (Peter Gabriel, Genesis, Grönemeyer) und 3 tagen in athen am kommenden wochenende.)

Hi Sabine,
Awesome picture! You captured a rare and beautiful moment here and what a good subject for the Abandoned Building's hunt! I admire your capacity to see the things in a different way! It is necessary to be an artist to do that!
Great composition, colors and sharpness! Bravo! Annie

Hard to find better! I love that interpretation!
It's first a good luck and probably you notice it and came often! Many great shot were planning in advance . Have the impression to see a monster sucking blood of an agonizing victim...

Hi Wishnu,
Wooooww!!This is very interesting moment to this macro..I like it..Well captured.TFS.

Liebe grüsse!
