Damselflies (Two Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

I seldom process insects in Black and White,however, I am noticing a few advantages. The eyes of damselflies are hard to focus on as they fluid filled, this matters less in black and white. The wings also stand out a bit better. What is lost of course is the wonderful blue of damselflies and their stripes, while prominent in black and white, don’t have that racing strip look. Everything has trade-offs.

    I struggle with capturing the beauty of their wings. Usually I see them where there is noisy background.
