Well I dare anyone to pick the bones out of this, the only thing I'm unsure about is the central composition, otherwise it's as good an image you'll get of this 'difficult' to say the least species, cracking work Ray!

A gorgeous capture - I don't mind the central composition!! Smile Brilliantly sharp details more then make up for a 'broken rule'! Smile

Yes I too feel that most of the stem could be lost but that minor point does not detract from a brilliant image of a great insect.

A real belter Ray, you've really nailed this one and captured its wing markings and patterns in such intricate detail
