That's a neat shot - it's all shadow isn't it? What was it sitting on?

Really great, puzzling picture. Yes, diagonals can be very powerful. Excellent

Thank you very much for the comments everyone ! Yep it's all shadow.
The damselfly was hovering just above the stick and the wings were froze at
1/6400 sec. I then healed out the damselfly so that its shadow is all
that is left.

Take care,
Dwayne Oakes
