  1. i love dragonflies! there’s just something very fantasy/mythical about them. PLUS – they’re SHINY! 😀

    • Thanks black… photographing a dragonfly has been on my photo bucket list for a while.

      If you’re interested, I found out after taking this shot that the critter pictured is actually a damselfly (rather than a dragonfly). They hold their wings vertically when at rest and have a gap between their eyes.

      Compare to the photo of a dragonfly:

  2. Wow 😀 I’m amazed. Looks so damn good.
    Did you invest on a macro lens?
    Looking forward for more.
    Cheers!

  3. nice shot. Which lens did you use for this one?

  4. @ Me-Shak & Dev – Thanks guys!
