I know you've gotten the comment.... but, no insects :(

Nicely shoot, but as I'm sure you've heard already, the challenge wording was very specific and insects weren't included. If you can document that a dragon fly is included in the list for this challenge, then please email me and I'll reconsider my vote. Myqyl@e-clark.us

The challenge was very specific about what was considered wildlife. This wasn't one of the choices.

Nice shot of nature at its most voracious, dinner time. How you caught this is amazing...

Great macro. Nice DOF and the dragonfly is crisp throughout. Well done.

Insects weren't mentioned in the challenge details. Don't really think your photo meets the challenge even though it is quite a nice picture.
