Fantastic use of DOF to isolate the subject. The texture in the wings is so cool, and especially because you can see the background texture through them.

Oh MY! But he doesn't look dead ?? Man, Greg! I think I see little eyelashes on that sucker! And I think he's picking his nose :) The detail is absolutely to DIE for! I love these insects too. The blue in them makes them so pretty!

Excellent shot. I love dragon flies. I plan on planting petunias all over my yard this year as I hear it attracts them. Love the details you captured here.

This really shows how big those suckers are - or that's a really really small fly.

POV is superb of the dragon Fly.. Detail is also great esp the wings.. And he glows.
The fire trail has got to be the best place!!!
Very good macro:)

I was having a hike up a Mt Fuji a few years ago with a Kiwi guy (not the Mt Fuji but a loal one), and we wondered what dragonflies ate. Not long afterwards, we saw one eating a fly. Making crunching noises, too. ;-Þ.

Great shot.
