[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Emerald Damselfly or Common Spreadwing (Lestes sponsa) is one of the larger damselflies, this species is most common in July and August. It is often found by ponds and lakes, and is very rarely seen along flowing water. Emerald Damselflies like to perch among reeds, their colour providing good camouflage. They are not as strong fliers when compared to other common damselflies such as the Common Blue or Large Red Damselflies, but they are more likely to be seen on misty, rainy days then those species. When disturbed they usually do not fly very far away, landing on another perch a few yards away. Their habit of perching with their wings half open is characteristic of the family Lestidae and gives rise to their other common name of spreadwings.

podoba mi się ułożenie ważki, kompozycja całości obrazu. Kolorystycznie też bardzo ciekawie, głównie ze względu na tło. Dobre zdjęcie!
Pozdrawiam serdecznie

Hi Arkadiusz...
Beautiful macro shot...
Beautiful timing, colors, composition...
Have a nice weekend...

A really good damselfly capture. Sharp, elegant, and the green smooth b/g is a plus.

Ciao Arkadiusz

A pretty thing, this fine dragonfly,
Not the most artistic pattern but the fine ornaments and delicate colours make a lovely creation...
