Theo Bosboom - Damsel close-up


I have been photographing damselflies for more than 10 years now. It was my first macro subject nad it is still one of my favourite subjects in summer. You could say it is a sort of addiction. The combination of beauty and elegance on the one side and cruelty and fearlessness on the other side make these creatures very fascinating for me.

Here is an extreme close-up of a small red damselfly, taken with the Canon Mp-e 65 macro lens in the Netherlands, early in the morning when the damslefly was still covered with dewdrops..


Location: Hatertse vennen, the Netherlands
