Very nice shot. But tell me, what calibre rifle do you use when hunting damsel flies?

Lol, usually nothing less than a .45 and aim right between the eyes, but I've found a 12 bore generally does the trick

well this VS idea does rejuvenate the older images - this was originally posted before i even joined

a couple of points if i may, and that given the image age, you may well have already determined to correct or alter

i) regards Shroomer's comment abouve - i would say that the image needed a little negative exposure compensation in order to avoid blowing or over-exposing the highlights, i tend to find it also enhance detail throughout the image (obv do not over do it else you will lose shadown detail)

ii) a non-central composition generally enhances the image - here as your subject is looking to image right, ideally it should be positioned image left - you may wish to look into the 'rule of thirds' if you are not already familiar with such

best regards, i hope no offence taken
