Competition 2023 – Photography – Under 18 years – Gustav Parenmark – (1) Emerald damselfly. Lestes sponsa

By Gustav Parenmark, age 17

I went out at 4 AM to photograph emerald damselflies early in the morning by a mire on the Swedish island of Fårö. Although quite the task, I eventually managed to get a stacked portrait of this gorgeous male, with his stunning blue colouration.
