Super focus on the damselfly and the reed that she stands on Yves. Her detail shows up beautifully. I agree with Heather this would have been a very challenging shot to master.

Thank you for your appreciation of my work. It is less chalenging now because I am developped the know how and I am more confident of a good result. The challenge was the last 2 years, today is more the pay back. But there is a compromise, always is, to get the F20 aperture I needed a ISO of 1800

Heather Mellon

Very well captured against a challenging background Yves. Wonderful detail on this little beauty. Hopefully she will live on to see another day..

Thanks Heather. You are dam right. Those tiny subject are a real chalenge to do with the 70-400 lens. Must be on manual focus and because I am wearing glasses (what you get is not necessarely what you see). I am getting better at it though.

Poor dear damsel! Who doesn't know that the guy next door has an hungry eye on her perfect body.
