[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

The Red-Veined Darter is one of those Southern European species which has been extending its range Northwards. It's a medium-sized dragonfly; in fact, for a Darter it's quite large and heavy-looking. In our area it's very common and occurs in huge numbers, e.g. at some nearby rice fields. Sympetrum fonscolombii is a very pretty, easily recognisable species; besides the male's deep red colour and red wing-veins (both of which are yellow in females and immature males), and a whitish patch on the side of the male's thorax, the most distinguishing feature is the blue underside of the eyes...........

WOW great macro
nice colours and sharp details

Great composition and colour contrast.

incredibilmente stupenda, ottimo il movimento delle ali e la nitidezza del muso, dettaglio degli occhi perfetto.....grande scatto degno di una copertina del National Geographic.
un saluto
