Female Common Blue Damselfly......The lights a bit harsh, but as it taken out in the field I'm happy with it as it shows all the detail on the mouth parts, something I'd had probably lost if I'd exposed it any other way.....
Thanks for all the positive votes and comments regarding the cemetery series I've recently posted, it was completely away from my more normal work, I think I'll have to try some more from now on Wink

A stunning image Ade, at first I thought it was some form of Alien remake.

Excellent detail you've captured Ade, as usual! They are soooo strange when you look at them close up.

Glad to see you back with the beasties, Ade, though that's not to say I didn't like your change in subject Smile. Wonderful detail in his mush, he's rather in need of shave, methinks Grin Carol

Quite astonishing image, the detail in the head and mouth quite exceptional: excellent considering it was taken 'in the field' and not under controlled studio conditions.

Awesome detail in this incredible close up Ade. I thought you'd have grave doubts about uploading any more landscapes and urban scenes after Nathan's savage critique of your work yesterday!Wink

So unusual to see the mouth parts, Ade, wonderful work. Reminds me of a triffid, original version of course.
