Emperor Light

By celestun
As promised, here is a look at the markings of the Emperor dragonfly (Anax imperator)...

... I have included in the modifications another view showing the head, which was less interesting photographically, but more so scientifically...

... the entire body of an average-sized dragonfly would fit into the left portion of wing shown in this shot... about 5cm across!

Comments and modifications most welcome!

Extraordinary detail, Tim - a stunning close-up (or is it a macro? I gather there's a difference but I'm not sure what it is).
