all three are good, Ray but the second shot is competition worthy.
Ray: You are very kind, Ayush.
Gosh they are such beauties - and wonderful shots!
Ray: One of the most eye-catching of the Damselflies, Elizabeth.

I love the bottom picture how it shows how the waterplants grow. The pattern is wonderful so is the dragonfly.
Ray: Elizabeth calls the plant "Mosaic Plant", which I think is quite apt, Astrid.

J'aime beaucoup sa couleur métallisée.
Ray: C'est une belle Demoiselle, Martine.
It's so wonderful that they have such a refuge, Ray!
Ray: Damselflies seem to be a successful species, Ginnie, and there are plenty of them also in the ricefields.

Wow - an electric blue beauty on a raft of joined-together photographic wonderfulness. The bottom picture is a cracker!
Ray: Lovely things wot!

Smart little damsels. You can see the leaf through the damsel's eye in the first shot!
Ray: Their eyes are startling objects, Lisl.

I do it like its launchpad especially.
Ray: A lovely plant, isn't it, Alan.
Le temps d'une pause de cette demoiselle et hop ..superbe ces trois photos !
bonne journée
Ray: C'est l'un de mes insectes préférés, Claudine!
They are beautiful little creatures and you have got a lovely setting for them
Ray: I enjoyed squatting at the edge of the water and observing these gorgeous critters, Bill.

It is a wonder they don’t short circuit in the water Ray.
Ray: I suppose they are clever with their application of insulating material, Chad.

Oh, they are rushing across the swamp - great images!
Ray: You are very kind, Philine.
This is brilliant
Ray: I am delighted you think so, Martin.
I wish they were common round my way so I could at least have a chance of taking a picture of one!
Ray: They are wonderful critters, Brian. Most are about at size and shape of a matchstick, but these ones are about double that size.

Some great shots. I like how this plant spreads out in circular layers, from the centre.
Ray: It is a most attractive water plant, Louis.
What eyes it has! The plant is beautiful too.
Ray: I was pleased to make a shot of them together, Mary.
she is a beauty Ray... three good close-ups....petersmile
Ray: Thank you, Peter.
Such oddly beautiful creatures...
Ray: Yours is an apt description, Larry.
