Damselflies In La Fortuna

Behind our accommodation in the small town of La Fortuna was a small woodland with a stream so I naturally investigated it for signs of life. Found a kingfisher, a vulture and a variety of insects, but none so enthralled me as much these beautiful damselflies. Capturing them was a trifle tasking, with the low light, long focal length, absent tripod and slow shutter speeds even at high ISOs all working against me. But perseverance always pays off in the end and I managed to eke out one or two pleasing shots.These were taken with the Olympus 40-150mm F/2.8 + MC-14 teleconverter, and the close-ups were shot with the Olympus 60mm F/2.8 macro. All mostly at ISO 1600.
