Excellent work with your camera here, these things are so fast, well done!!

The make up worked well, you'd think from looking that this was a dragon fly, appearances can be deceptive...!! :-)

It looks so delicate ... and bug-like icky all at the same time!

Great image but oh that quote put with it made me smile.

Martina said...

Uncle Boo, :-D - thank you very much!
... but it didn't trick us, didn't it?

yann, merci beaucoup - spooky comme le hulk, eh? ;-)

kobico, I must admit I don't like them that much when in motion and flying towards me - they are so huge.

donnie, enough to look frightening, though.

Joan Elizabeth, first I thought of another quote - I am reading Stephen King, hehe, at last - but then I thought that might give my readers nightmares ... ;-)

Are they real? They are 2, aren't they? Me too: I don't like having these creautes flying over me.... but they very elegant and they look nice in b&w.
You did a very nice cpaure here!

Martina said...

ana barata, I am not 100% sure but I think (but 99 ;-)) this is a female Black-tailed Skimmer (Orthetrum cancellatum) and, yes, it is only one. Thanks!

this too will pass said...

superb

Martina said...

ttwp, thank you!
It's cool how the b/w produces the "spooky face" - in the meantime I had a look at several colour photos of Black-tailed Skimmers and didn't see it.

that's looks great! It is a macro, isn't.
Well done

Martina said...

Ratzfatz, thanks. Depends how one defines macro I guess. It it not taken with a macro lens,though, but with a tele at 300mm (i.e. 450mm kleinbild).
