Same Damselfly as yesterday's upload, just a different perspective. The thing I thought interesting with this one is the detail in the mouth-parts, really strange and not something I've ever seen before.
Thanks for all the comments on yesterdays image, it wasn't until after I uploaded that I think I may have gone a bit mad with the saturation tool, but I've held back somewhat on this one, I really must go and get my eyes tested again Tongue

Thanks for taking the time to have a look.....Ade
