    Thanks Bob. Our only red damsel, Pyrrhosoma nymphula.
     
  4. Great set, Torben. Beautiful captures.
     
  5. Another beautiful series, Torben. Which lens did you use?
     
  6. Very nice indeed, love the pair in the 3rd shot.

    Thanks Phil. I apreciate your comment. They are fascinating animals.

    Thank David. I used the 300 f.4 with extensions tubes. I'm getting real happy with that solution. It gives a better working distance than the 105 mm and I can stop dreaming of the 200 mm macro (for a while at least). :smile:

    Thanks Alex. My favorite too.
     
  8. "Nothing spectacular" ???

    Excellent work, Torben!

    I really love that "over optimistic third wheel approacing" shot...

    Wow Torben -- you and Jukka certainly see a lot more variety than the few I encounter here.

    Thanks Tom.

    Thanks Bob. I have seen a lot of different kinds of damsels this year and also a few dragons. Some of them are pretty hard to get. I have my plans for some new water areas in the next few weeks.

    Thanks for your kind words Tim. I'm using the cheap Kenko tubes. It's true that they are a bit loose that might be a problem when you shoot with low shutter speeds.
     
  13. Very neat! I had no idea they could bend like that.

    Thanks Victor. This is their mating position. Very impressive and fascinating indeed.
     
  15. Cool, I've not come across any mating yet, I'll keep my eyes open.
