Great picture. I think that photo should be rated NC-17 What a shot, good job. I was reading in a photog magazine about a photographer who said people told her her shots were "plant porn" because they were so up close and almost sensual. We might be working ourselves into bug porn here.

Thanks for all the comments and advice on identifying dragons and damsels. I am off out shortly to photograph some more, no idea whether I will be able to work out the difference now or not though, probably not knowing me! lol!

It's absolutely scorching hot here today, not sure how long I will be able to stand the heat as me and summer don't really get on but it's the best time for the damsels and dragons. Just hope the camera doesn't over heat.

Don't worry about the heat - I've used mine in over 90 degree Fheat (haven't been in anything triple digits yet, unless it gets over 100 today where I am). Just drink plenty of water and bring back some more outstanding shots of these (whatever they are) flies.

Here is my first dragonfly picture ... thanks for the inspiration. They are fun to follow around and photograph.

Cheers, Mike
