This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago in an arboretum near Vienna.
Lovely close up, colour, detail, lighting just perfect.
Thank you very much, Chris!
This ticks all the boxes as far as I am concerned. So it gets my vote.
Superb shot,well done.
A pin sharp well detailed capture.
Thanks so much for your comments, Peter, Bob and Steve. I am very grateful for them.
I would love to be able to take photo's as good as this
Thanks so much, Sam! This feels really good! Actually, I use a compact digital camera (Olympus), and it enables me to take pictures from as close as one centimetre (less than half an inch). The other half of the trick is getting close to the animal (in the present case a dragonfly). You need to move really slowly, and stay put for a while. Then they get used to your presence, and you can freely move extremely close to them, and take several pictures with flash or without flash. I prefer flash, by the way, to get more details. I observed that some butterflies and dragonflies seem to ENJOY my taking pictures of them, they pose and even let me push them gently in the right direction and posture. Some others are less friendly but as they say, it takes all. Good luck to shooting macros, and make sure you post your best shots here, so that everybody, including myself, can marvel at them.
Very nice capture.
An excellent shot,
