Well done! I know how hard it is to take pictures of these guys. They are too busy!

Oh wonderful! I am not very lucky with insects. They tend to fly away when I'm still a long way from taking a picture!

Stunning. I don't know how you do it, every macro shot is better than the last one... and I thought the last one was outstanding.

Just a superb macro! I tried dragging a fly the other day to take a picture, but it flew off! Then it landed in my ice cream!

Nah...just kidding.

Re: Your comment on Ocala DP - I'm not sure anything will be left for those who come behind us. Most of what we have today will disintegrate before their eyes!

This was just an awesome macro!!!! What camera do you have?

Craver Vii said...

The photography is stunning. The dragonfly itself, is quite amusing. Why would it be straddling the twig like that? Yee-haa! Ride-em cowboy!

Sara Chapman said...

An exquisite photo. But how do you know it is defending? Perhaps digesting, or meditating?
