I saw this dragonfly resting on the ground and I got curious about how close could creep in without triggering it to fly. Zoomed in with my G10 and crept in as close as I could. Much to my surprise, I liked what I captured!

What got my attention the most was the design on its wings. It got me thinking that if God bothered on such an intricate design on its wings, imagine how much more He would bother about designing us?

    Congratulations on feature of this amazing macro!! I think your color saturation is great as is. The rock makes a wonderful background that shows off the intricacies of the fabulous wings. They always remind me of leaded glass. With your wonderful colors though, they could be stained glass!! :)Karen

  • Thanks to both Karens! :) Pretty surprised it got featured!

    Great detail, color. Saturation looks fine to me! Did you use a polarizer? Who makes the G-10? ( I just got a new Pentax K-10 D ). Best regards!

  • Nope, just set to macro and zoomed in. Canon G10.
