Steven- I love doing macros and am looking forward this year to getting a better macro lens. I love the way we get to see a beauty and fasination in the world we normally don't get to. Just in awe of the colors and the unique look of the dragonfly here. Beautiful composition, lighting, and clarity.
Amazing work.
Have a wonderful day

Really amazing macro shot Steven! I've never seen a dragon fly so close. I'm glad you are still shooting. Keep great photos coming! (Why don't you reenter this? It deserves a medal.)
