B/w is a good choice to emphasize the delicate patterns of the wings. Lovely image! I think it could benefit from some noise reduction on the background.
Florence: It's sometimes difficult to have both Martin ! smile

Nicely captured though i feel these shots always look better in colour
Florence: Well, this time... no ! The background was really ordinary... smile

Strange, you have a 350D like me, you take pictures like this and I don´t. My camera must be broken smile
This is beautiful, great texture on the wings
Florence: Thank you, thank you, thank you !
very nice.
Florence: Glad you like this one.
elle s'est arrêtée juste pour vous Florence ! je vois pas d'autres explications ! vous faites comment, çà m'agace !!
Florence: J'attends... parfois longtemps... et c'est pas vraiment ma tasse de thé !! smile

Excellent close-up and detail in this mono.
Florence: Thank you very much Louis.
Le choix du N&B met bien en valeur la structure des ailes. La légère surex au niveau du corps la coupe un peu en deux ;-) Mais bon c'est général pas très patient ces petites bêtes :-D
Florence: Tu as tout dit ! smile

These are such amazing insects. They are so colourful that I wouldn't have thought of b/w but it works really well. It looks like some little metallic sculpture.
Florence: Many thanks Ingrid.

I always have trouble with dragonflies. They are so fearful. That's why I always admire a good drag shot. And this is exactly the case. Z

Great shot! Dragonflies are so fragile, what a sophisticated pattern they have got on their wings! You have captured it very well!

Si le choix du noir et blanc pour une libellule est original il est aussi ici réussi.
