    Great shot.
  4. Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated.

  5. That second one is good, and the backgrounds are excellent. I do however question the colour of the subject. I think that your flash may just have taken the edge off the azure blue of the damselfly. It is only a minor point but one worth considering.

    Try them in natural light and see if there is a discernable difference.

  6. Thanks Bob.

    I concur with your views.


  7. I wonder if it's a teneral specimen (immature). They can be pinkish, although I admit I get thoroughly confused by the blue damselflies.
    I agree with all the other comments. Nice work!

  8. Great shots, Alex!

    I agree with Alan that somewhat pale colors because they´re still teneral (or maybe the correct way to say that they are not just yet mature, but close) as I don´t see much of a difference in colors and #1 is shot without a flash...

    I like #1 very much, nice clean natural look, just as it should be...and good compo...
  9. Thanks Jukka. Love your work.
