A different angle, but really works well. Love the curve of the flower stem coming in from the right.

Another of those species we don't get here Grrr!

So glad to be the 30th voter on this amazing image. The backlighting has brought out all the colours, and the stem coming from the fg is so unusual.

This is a good one. Where did you take the photo?

Thanks for all your kind support on this one. It took a while to get noticed, there's something about dark images on this website, people rarely notice them.
It's funny technically this one is ten times more difficult than the previous dragonfly I uploaded, but not quite so popular!

This was taken close to the ground with the sun in my eyes, lying on my back and feet pointed away from the subject, effectively I took this upside down in the most awkward position!

Great position to be in taking a picture. Why should the camera do all the work? Hope you got bitten by ants and ... yeah ok I'm jealous.It's a terrific shot adn again you have achieved some lovely and different lighting to many standard macro shots so you get 5 * for effort, ingenuity, inspiration, handling the camera and being there...

Well done

Superb. Well worth the effort. JNC
