Stunning macro, great dof and attention to detail - well shot, the 500 pixel resizing doesnt do the image justice must be seen in the larger view.

Detail is amazing in the large version. Excellent work Tim.

I see you use Sigma 180mm, obviously more close up than the Canon 100mm?

I have begun to find dragonflies tiresome and pass many of them by and don't pursue them as a subject. You are going to make me rethink that decision. This is absolutely amazing. The colors and detail are just lovely. Definitely a big winner in my eye.

Yes, there have been a lot of dragonflies lately, but this one really stands out. I'm just glad to be human size!
