    Mark, I’m totally jealous. Every time I’ve been close enough, my camera’s been somewhere else. Gorgeous shot.

    Beautiful job Mark. What sort of lens did you use?

    @Dot Radley – this was taken with my Canon 350d with the Canon 100mm macro lens.

    unreal – I don’t know if I’m to jumpy or the insect I find are, but I can never seem to get them sitting still. I love this shot.

    @Linda – the secret is to get down low and approac very slowly. I was in a ‘commando’ crawl to get this one and approached about 30cm at a time taking a shot at each step, until I got this one which is about 5cm from the dragonfly.
