  • Description: With a trained and experienced eye for finding insects, it’s an incredible fact that there are so many around us! I found one small damselfly covered with morning dew resting on flower. I carefully took flower with damselfly on it into my plant-house where I am protected from the wind. Meanwhile, the little damselfly has partially awaken and brushed some dew drops from his eyes, but not all. That was actually very welcomed, as now I got his eyes almost dry, but other parts of his body are still covered with dew. I took many shots as he was still in hibernate state. After he reached high enough temperature he started to warm up his wings and I let him fly out. For this photo, I took 153 shots and stacked them into one composite image. Sony a7R IV camera and Laowa 25mm 2.5-5x Ultra macro lens at 2.5:1 magnification, on tripod and electronic macro rails.
