Damselflies in Close-Up (no extreme macro)

This contest is created and judged by a member of the Photocrowd community. Want to run your own? Find out more >

In this contest, I would like to see your best close-up photos of damselflies. Please try to show all or most of the damselfly in the shot, not extreme macro shots where just the head or wing etc. is visible. Dragonflies are not accepted in this contest, so please make sure your photos are of damselflies. Damselflies have slimmer bodies than dragonflies and at rest generally hold their wings close alongside their abdomen, whereas a dragonfly will usually rest with its wings at right-angles to the body. I hope you have fun with this contest.

How it works

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.

Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
