This Dragon Fly was kind enough to sit still long enough for me to get this image.

The number and variety of these creatures never ceases to amaze me. What a lovely detailed capture you made of this one. The eyes intrigue me. There are huge and well defined. His stance and psotoion say, "Hurry up and take your picture. I'm not waiting long." But, it was long enough. Great capture. Nice work.

Excellent shot. This may be the best of this type I have seen. The background is just superb for this shot. Crispness and color are spot on. Great job.

Wow, absolutely amazing. I liked the blurred background - how it kind of frames the dragonfly. This is so clear! Awesome job.

And again....that soft muted background is gorgeous....and to be able to capture such a grand shot of this little critter, I think you must have a magical connection with all the critters you take photos of Michael..they all seem to just pose for you!..this is gorgeous..Verena

I've found that if you move slow these little guys will do some posing and even let you move them around on your finger. This is a very nice capture. Very good composition.

Crikey thereís some serious colour in this one. Itís an all round excellent feast for the eyes. By the way Iíve had these little guys perch on my lens twice lately but I had trouble getting them in focus :-)
