Cold morning really helps to still the difficult subjects and watter drops are just a bonus :)

I think it's platycnemis pennipes, but will wait if someone can confirm that.

Wonderfull photo. The only complaint is that the distances to the two eyes are not equal, so both popped into focus.

It is certainly a Plactynemis (Featherleg), which have relative big distance between the eyes (in relation to eye diameter), compared to all other European damselflies. In your region, P. pennipes should be the only Featherleg, and it's found in most of Europe.

cheers

Forgot to mention the cool look of the waterdrop, covering most of the lover face.

Erland: Yep, it's very distracting that left eye is off focus. He kept moving his head :)

MacroLuv: I held a purple flower behind the subject, to get more pleasant background. I usually have one or two flowers with different color with me, so i can manipulate the background :)

If you can hold purple flowers behind your Damselfly's you must have much tamer ones than I have, and Dragonflies are even more jumpy!

Excellent photo teva..I had to look at it for a few seconds to find out what the half circle was under his face (the water drop) :roll:
