Beauty, Happiness, and Small Victory

What a delight! A damselfly had landed beside me on a spotlighted piece of leaf.

I took one, and two quick snaps, then it left me and to be discovered by others.

And these minute fractions: the greeting of a tiny damselfly, or the kind look of a handsome dragonfly, just made me a happier man.

All these took place at Cerok Tokun.

(Someone called me a Cerok Tokun guy. You got it!! )

the original inventor of helicopter must have seen damselfly and wonder at its elegance and lightening speed in manoeuvrings .... ~bangchik

nice photos of the insects. its not that easy to get these ones with naive cameras but better with slr's having good optical zoom. going near to them, a quick escape will be the result.. i tried a few times..

You must have extremely good material to have such sharp macro pictures

Somebody is hogging my new small screen lap top (of course to load something important)..well my tiny blackberry zooms in quite well with richer color in fact..enough to see the brilliant detail of these lovely damsels! The second expression appears as if you did that on purpose!! (Lol) waited for just the right look!
I admire your subjects-

I like your damselfly shot. We seems to be eying the same type of living things around us. The difference is the location and of course you have excellent skill and sharp photos.
