Jaak Põder - Last Stop


Great Sundew — often seen view where there is no flower on the photo, only leaves. And sometimes their victim, like this damselfly here.

    Hey Jaak, actually I like this image. There is a gorgeous light mood in the background and I like the backlit damselfly. But I think a little bit more framing could help to intensify all this beauty!?

    In nature red usually symbols danger and this damselfly should have known better. I like the way the red danger is depicted in this photo and way that the damselfly's eyes seem to be bulging with the desire to escape.

    True, Werner, maybe it would help a bit if I understood you right, but then the right light rings would become too much blurred I think.

    @Sven - that damselfly was alive still so yeah, the design of its head in this case gives some additional feeling of desperation to it, at least to me.
