Blue eyes

I'm very excited about this shot. The damselfly stayed still for a lot longer than I expected, so I crept in closer and closer. I like the 3 toned eyes.
Woah, hello there!

Fantastic macro shot! I find damsels so difficult to photograph. Mostly it's because I usually see them at the lake … when I'm strapped into a rowing shell and I only have a point-and-shoot at my disposal! Nice lens! I think that's the one I wanted when I bought the 60 but if memory serves, the 100 didn't have IS at the time.

@888rachel It's a bloody fantastic shot, much better than many I've seen in magazines.

@golftragic Thanks Marnie, that's heartening to hear. I get such funny looks when I'm taking photos of insects, sometimes I wonder...
posted October 7th, 2017  
@888rachel Some people are just plain ignorant and/or unimaginative. I get funny looks when I'm taking some of my more grungy or industrial shots. But we photographers know better don't we? You have a real talent in this area, go get 'em girl.

That is just wonderful - the colour is electric and depth of field just accentuates it.
posted October 7th, 2017  
Wow! Incredible. Love the colour. Fav

@888rachel hi, I think the rules for the top 20 changed a while back so it would only feature 1 photo per user per week
posted October 14th, 2017  
@Scrivna Hi Ross, yes I was aware of the one photo per person. I just thought this would have gone in the week before?
