And another damselfly, this time with prey. It landed a few seconds after I removed a Rosemary Beetle :)

Seems like my son is some kind of insect magnet. At least on our Rhodes vacation.
One day, after a dragonfly landed on his toe, a mantis crawled on his arm at the beach.
We could arrange a photo shooting in return for a safe transfer first to the sunbed, later to better hunting grounds than the beach.
Edit: And yes, my son got a sunburn on the first day, even though we were very careful. So WB and skin tone in the first pic is not too reddish ;)

200D, 70-300DO, @300 mm,
all f/13, 1/2000, ISO800, some cropping
