    Great Capture. I also tried getting some dragon fly macros at Snug Harbor but I didn't even come close. This is beautiful.

This is a crazy-good image Jerome!
What is up with the two white spots? Looks like someone glued those little doll eyes up there!

Thanks for the kind comments.
I am not sure what the white spots are. Maybe reflection from the sun. I did not add them to the picture.

I was reading camera reviews on the Pentax *isD and wanted to see what kind of pictures have been taken with it. Boy am I glad I did, or I would not have seen this picture. Absolutly amazing detail and clarity! Incredible shot Jerome!! And congratulations on your second place win!
