Just another . . . . . . . . . blog!
The wings look like leaded glass – or whatever I should call it when it seems that the metal framing is copper – and the colors are astonishing. That has to be how the dragonfly appears to its prey. Fierce.
You’re right Gerry. Maybe I should try to catch more of the light reflected in the wings. Here the focus was on the eyes. My goal was to resolve the single elements of the mosaic-eyes. You can click the image for a slightly larger version.
I wouldn’t like beeing close enough to see the eyes if I was a fly.
Det er nogle fantastisk skarpe billeder og smukke farver. Man bliver helt opslugt af at se alle detaljerne. kh Gitte
Ja, det er altid interessant nÃ¥r man fÃ¥r mulighed for at se detaljer ud over dem i dagligdagen. Enten det er i mikroskop eller astronomiske kikkerter.
Impressive how you got so many little details – superb image!
Thanks for noticing Truels.
This post got many visits after I announced it on Facebook. Have you tried that?
Love the detail, which lens did you use? I could never get a shot this close.
I’m glad you like it. I used a macro lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L IS USM
The lens can make incredible sharp images – the problems are focusing and to get enough light for small apertures.
