Banded Damoiselle onTeasel Leaf 2

Banded Damoiselle onTeasel Leaf 2 - The British Wildlife Photography Awards 2009 to 2014
Male Banded Damoiselle (Calopteryx splendens) on a Teasel Leaf by the bank of the River Tas, Caistor St Edmund, Norfolk, England. This image was taken at dawn using a flash to provide enough light to expose the Damoiselle and underexpose the background.The Background appears completely black, eliminating any distraction and placing the focus on the subject. At this time of the morning Damoiselles are usually covered in dew and are too cold to fly. In this image the gorgeous metallic colours shine through the dew and appear as if the Damoiselle is encrusted in gem stones.
