He looks enormous.

Thanks Tinselfire.


The wingspan is only 65 to 75mm, so it's not enormous, but taken with a macro lens to look enormous.

He had a good photographer -.o

Beautiful! The golden color makes it look like jewelry!

Thanks Ariya-sacca!


These beauties áre jewelry. If the light hits the wings they look like glass.


So fragile, yet so cruel, because they are cannibals.

Thanks BeckyKidus!

I'm glad you like it!


At first, I thought it was a hornet, and it landed right next to me. Because I moved, it turned to the end of stroke of reed just a meter away. I'm glad it did, because otherwise I could have never nailed this shot with a 100mm lens at a distance of about 20 cm.


These dragonflies tend to fly away, so I got lucky ;)

I've tried to take photos of dragonflies myself, so I know that well :lol: I have yet to get any really good photos of any.
