Congratulations on this Feature inBackyard Macro & Closeups Group!!!=
thanks Barnsis, its great to be featured in this group.
Beautiful shot!Your title caught my eye, though, since dragonflies don’t “hatch”. Did you mean that this one has metamorphosed from being a nymph and freshly moulted its skin?Extraordinary color – I have not seen that variety here, nor one like it. And, also extraordinary – it looks like there is a face on the back of its head! Very cool shot. =)
Hi Ben, Phil put this description on late one night and I think he must mean it was moulting its skin, but I will ask him and find out where it was taken.
Wow! What a capture! Congrats on your feature!
