Thank you for commenting Alf !

And for kind words.. There is always an element of luck involved:)..These insects (Coenagrion pulcellumseemed to be around in great numbers and the period of egglaying is on and the colorful float drew everybody’s attention and made the task easier. br Hannu

Hi Hannu

This is something I've seen many times but never been able to capture, the landing of the dragon flys on the fishing float has been composed well, and the colours, refloections and slight ripple bring it all alive.

Very well done!

Best Regards

Alf
