My try at the Dragon Fly.
Taken on one of my many trips to the zoo.
This guy was kind enough to stay still for a second, well almost a full second :)

great macro! I love the detail of his wings and face, really stands out against the blurred background.

Sorry for the comment yesterday, rack it up to a very bad day. This is a very nice image, good macro work. The background could be a little darker, if you hold something above to cast a shadow behind, and that would make it a stronger image. However as nice as a macro shot as it is, I don't feel that it meets the topic for still life. I know this is a controversial subject here right now, but that is my opinion.

kinda more of a portrait, but it's impressive, i'd've entered it too 'cause it's pretty and a rare shot, though it kinda stretches the theme of the challenge.

living object can't be a still life?
