An extremely good macro/close up photograph Terry, in which you have managed to capture the beauty, colour, and splendid detail of this rather Big Eyed 'Common Darter Dragon Fly', peering at you rather intensively.

A real stonker of a macro shot Terry, talk about an extreme close up! You have given the Big O a good run for his money with this one
