Dragonfly in my backyard

A new personnel best for me and top 20 in a free study. I really enjoyed shooting these dragonflies. It was a heat wave in the northeast and dragonflies were everywhere. It took some time but you could get really close to them.

Need to work on my processing as the compound eye was more visible in the original version and I should have been able to get more of that into the submitted image.

A very elegant macro, but the dragon fly seems to look a little posed. Great technicals.

A beauty. Needs to be the poster child for all macro workshops: "Get the eye's and nose in focus". 7
