A damselfly covered in early morning dew creates a bejewelled effect in the morning sunshine.
The dew-covered insects were captured on camera by photographer Patrick Goossens, 50.
He has dedicated years to getting the perfect shot, studying dragonfly and damselfly behaviour to help him get closer to the creatures…


…Patrick, from St-Martens-Bodegem, near Brussels, Belgium, said: “I have to get up early to find the dragonflies while they’re still covered in dew and I like to be on the spot 15 minutes before sunrise. The best chances for dew are in the months of May to June and September to October. If there is some ground mist, that will add to the amount of drops”
