Breath-taking. I've been present for a damsel-fly hatch while fishing and seen the emergence from the water. It was incredible. It's great to see them in this detail. Amazing shots you've taken, well done!

Thanks to all of you for your kind and motivating words.
For me it is still a long way to reach the perfection of people like Saly or Raghu.

Cheers,

Stefan

Really impressive Stefan. Those damselflys are real contortionists!
