Hi dian,
I saw some dragonflies today, but none of them posed for me like this one!
I guess this is Panasonic FZ5 - no closeup lens?
How do you send them to sleep?
I hope one comment is allowed: The eyes seem to be slightly out of focus? The focus had to be on the wings! If you have a post processing tool, try to select the eyes with a lasso tool and sharpen them. We all tend to look at the eyes first and this trick must be allowed.
thanks for sharing!!

Hi seemolf, thanks, next time I'll try to sharpen them a bit with a good editor, at this time I have to use the one and only crappy software with no sharpening tool, , this even soften the picture and make it worse.

Most dragon flies here are very kind and they love to smile :G.

Oh yes seemolf, I shoot them with fz5 alone, maybe next time I'll get the nikon close up lens to complete our exciting macro shots.

Thanks again.
