Bi-Colored Damselfly (Ceriagrion cerinorubellum)

Post by Adrian »

Got this one today.

Closest i have ever been to a damselfly without disturbing it.
I think it tolerated my presence, because it was chewing up a big meal when i found it.

Well, I think this damsel is munching. :D
Nice creature with lovely colours. 8)
I wonder how it get balance with this elongated body? Where is the barycenter? The rear long narrow part must be lighter than short chest? :-k
The meaning of beauty is in sharing with others.

Noticing of my "a" and "the" and other grammar
errors are welcome. :D

Nice natural setting and lighting, good background and excellent DOF and focus on the beautiful damselfly IMO. :smt023

Nah Nikola this is it Munching.. :lol:
I think its eating a fly, cause theres a little bubble you can see that resembles the bubble that flies love to blow.

I think that the rear part must be lighter too. Strange Anatomy isnt it?
Thanks Nikola.

Thanks Bruce, I dont think theres any Damselflies in Australia, Least i havent seen any. That i am glad i have a good photograph.

Thanks doug! I try hard to make my photographs as natural as posible. afterall it is in my goals to capture the beauty of nature.
