Great exposure Fons !
what is the reason the colours look a bit flat in this foto ? - quite different to your last golden shot !

Thanks Dirk Guttmann ,
The reason the colours look a bit flat in this foto ?
Different kind of insect gives different colours....?
I opened again the original picture to see if I went wrong somewhere.
Cant see any , this is the colour from this type of Dragonfly I guess.
I looked also to the other picture, that was a Damselfly .
The colours of a Damselfly is much harder I noticed.
Maybe thats the answer.....;-)

Dirk if you have a look back at this Dragonfly http://myolympus.org/document.php?id=3419
You will see the same flat colours, I think it is the same type as I shot today...
Just a little extra info, regards,

Thank you Adrie for you comment,
When I made this picture it came up in my mind , you dont need a high quality macro lens to make those kind of close - ups.
The only minus with this setup is that you can never take a picture with the whole insect in it.
You are working right at the front of the lens.
Anyway it is a nice experience observing these insects at closer range.

Correction for Adrie !
Now I learned that Damsels : DragonFly = fluorescent colours : NOT fluorescent colours !
Instead of "FLAT" I should have used "not fluorescent" because that 's what I ment and what it shows compared to

I agree Dirk,
Damsels have more fluorescent colours than the Dragonfly, the word flat was a wrong pick indeed.
By Flat we think about "flache farbe" this is quit different from fluorescent.
So now we have that straiten out again everybody is happy again....;-))
Realy nice from you to come back at this issue..
