A close-up shot of a dragonfly's face. Taken on the edge of my garden pond.

Lit with my external flash. I've started using this for my insect macros and find it works well, allowing me to stop down fully and use a fast shutter speed, even on dull days.

Great shot - which could be improved only by increased DOF and clarity. [7]

Man that really is close up! I love macros where you can see the criss-crossy stuff in the insect's eyes. Choice!

A little sharpness would have made this a perfect shot. Still deserves high marks. Good job.
