    Great series Jukka. All are great but the first one of the Calopteryx Splendens is absolutely fantastic. Some of them are rare here in Denmark.
  3. I agree with this.

  4. Very nice. And thanks for continuing to include the names (I notice others doing this also, and of course there are people always willing to help ID). I'm finding macro photography not only fun, but extremely educational as well.
  5. Great stuff Jukka but the first stands out to me.

  6. I agree - a splendid splendens. Well done!

  7. Splendid serie, Jukka, especially the splendens. Excellent work!

    Excellent shots Jukka.
  9. These are fantastic images, Jukka. You probably have said before, but what lens are you using for these?
  10. Thanks all!

    I guess I could say that the splendens shot is one of the best shots I have taken IMO. :smile:

    Thanks, Tom!

    I used Nikkor 300mm AF-S f4 + Nikon PN-11 tube on all of those shots.
