I don't think I've ever seen a dragonfly (?) this close before! Great job on the shallow dof!

This is an amazing macro photo. I really love how you can see the detail on his eyes. I only wish the background wasn't so dark. Really great => 9

How did you get that dragon fly to pose like that?! :) Great macro shot. I like the way the wings are visible enough to identify it as a dragonfly.

Love the dof and the color. Maybe couldhave been cropped more effectively.
