Beautiful Demoiselle

Today I went back to an idea I had a few years ago. I want to photograph Beautiful Demoiselles in their natural environment with a wide-angle lens. But I haven’t been to the right place at the right moment with the right circumstances for a while. Today I had another try. But again, the damselflies didn’t really want to cooperate. I tried with my fish eye, but they didn’t want to sit on the right place with a nice background. Meanwhile I tried some more portraits, this time of females. Here is the nicest, I’ll get back to my idea another time…

  1. Don’t you just get so frustrated when wildlife doesn’t cooperate?…………

  2. I guess that is why they are called wild-life 🙂
