With some insects you can rotate them and they look fine - for me personally I prefer Dragonflies to be the right way up.

You've caught its eyes beautifully and, because the body/wings are out of focus, I don't mind them being cropped off. I really like the colours and details you've caught, this makes a lovely close up.

Sorry Karenfb it was you who noticed that the image had been rotated 360 and not satireblue well spotted

Any which way is fine with me.
I thought we'd reached the end of this series so I'm pleased to re-visit this fine image.

Way up OK with me, but I've seen them settle both ways. Depth of field is tiny, but reasonably adequate although I' m not sure the eyes are pin sharp. They are close and I'm on a tablet, so I'll reserve judgement. A good natyral light close up and quality looks good at this size.

Not macro, of course. Cannot be so with a zoom. A close up. So called macro zooms are not correctly named.
