OK, hold on...I'm a little speechless right now! I just can't find the words for this image...Beautiful, awesome, impressive,...The detail is marvelous not to mention the colors that stand out! You can see every little detail in this image and I guess that is what makes it so exceptional!! This is an absolute excellent image. An image that is very hard to do in macro. What is really impressive is the blurred background and the focus on the insect. I love how you can see the gradient colors on its head. I pretty much love everything about this image. Great work!
What do you think?

This shot is really what can be called breath-taking! The dragonfly caught flying this way is very impressive, I didn't thought it was possible to achieve with Canon Rebel XTi autofocus.

Which lens did you use to achieve that? The 100-400L from Canon?

Congratulations :)

this is really cool!

is there any reason why the dragonfly bent that way? did it get hurt? is it dancing?

crazy!

I have no idea why its bent, I know that the way in bends when it laying eggs or mating.
