Incredible macro! It looks so delicate.

Oh, that photo is amazing. Good for you to capture it. And, you have a wee bit of Mellow Yellow in the corner - even better.

Admirable!

Great detail! These little critters are certainly difficult to photograph well!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Great macro, EG. Isn't it amazing how much better we can see things when we look at them using the macro lens???
Hugs,

Wow..look at the detail!! The wing detail is stunning! Sarah

Judy said...

I love the wing detail, and the angles the four wings take, in relation to each other. I never knew they had hairs on their legs!

Jenn Jilks said...

I think I figured out the air traffic in your area: the child's body they found. Pretty sad. Mount Forest is due west of you and they would have been flying over.

Great shot.

Rose said...

Wow, that is a wonderful capture!

Carletta said...

I love these little guys and gals and I'm pretty sure from your photos you do too!
Excellent macro!

My macro is here: Carletta’s Captures.

VALKYRIEN said...

What a great shot! I love those funny insects, and your shot really shows a lot of details! How big those eyes are!

Craver Vii said...

That detail & precision... it boggles the mind that we can get up so close on these tiny things. The bristles on the stem are great, too.

Becky and Gary said...

Wow, what an amazingly clear shot. GREAT !

Tammie Lee said...

wonderful photo! I never tire of looking at dragonflies.

Rita said...

excellent shot.

I am going to have to get a macro lens.

Babooshka said...

Excellent. We do forget just how pretty these can be until you see them close up.

BJ Roan said...

I know from experience how hard it is to get one of these little guys to hold still long enough to get a good shot. Impressive.
