Would never have known it was in a contained environmentSmile

A fine piece of macro photography, but also very unusual too.
A good insight into their development stage

Brilliant image Clive, in some respect dragonflies are more interestin at the larval stage, bit like moths and butterflies really......Excellent image and technique here, thanks for sharing.....
