Siberian winter damselfly male
Weja

Excellent shot, Weja, but a strange name for a damselfly, as, surely, no Zygoptera could live through a Siberian winter!

There are two species of them here in the Netherlands.
They are the only two that goes as a adult damselfly through the winter.
They can produce a sort of anti freeze and survive the winter.
They can have easily minus ten degrees. The max lays around minus 18,
so they will not survive a real Siberian winter.

Thanks for the link you gave, Weja - amazing shot of the damselfly covered in ice crystals. It seems a dangerous life cycle for them to over-winter as an adult rather than as a nymph like other species, but maybe it means that they can get a head-start on other odonata in Spring.

Just having a bit of fun with the Canon EF-S 35mm f2.8 IS STM. The same female Common Darter (Sympetrum striolatum) in both photos.

I stopped at Lago d'Averno and photographed this Violet Darter to test my light quality after making some minor changes to my diffusers. At life size my flash is at the maximum distance that it will get from the subject, so this represents my worst case light quality.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (1x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT (E-TTL metering, -2/3 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

This is harder than catching a bullet in the dark with a pair of pliers.
