Fascinating shot, Michael. The fellow needs a shave. Nice eyes, though.
Congrats, good luck!

Second Place? I hope everyone realizes what a fleeting moment it is to shoot a bug or any living object, for that matter - and with the depth of field that's in yours... Your shot is Grand Prize in my eyes. Fabulous job! (The first thing I thought when I saw your photo was... "Holy Shot!" *wink. Outstanding job!

I'm with Adrienne...How do you convince a dragonfly to simmer down long enough for a capture like that? Too cool...gorgeous colors.
