I never saw such a fascinating close-up of a dragonfly like your first pic 🙂 ❤
Have a great week.

Thanks so much, Fillandra! 🙂 You too.

These are great. Love that top one! Superb focus on the head. And what is that that (s)he is holding under the leaf? It looks like lunch – a v small moth, or similar!
Great work! 🙂

Thanks so much, John! I think “small fly” was on the lunch menu. 🙂

Nice work Calee. Like what you did with shallow DOF in the first image – very creative! Appreciate the Latin too – helps me piece things together from around the world.

Thanks so much, Nick! 🙂 I was lucky one of them stayed still long enough for me to experiment a bit with different exposures..

I am amazed. They are fast little devils when I see them. Love the images.
August 12, 2013 at 10:23 PM
Thanks Annette! They are indeed very fast, though not as fast as dragonflies and luckily they take more breaks from flying as well 🙂

These are fantastic macros, Calee!

Beautiful blue ot the “fly,” Love these photos, Calee. Your 100mm macro does such a good job.

Thanks Yvonne! 🙂
Oh man, the first image is nothing short of awesome! Killer composition, selective focus, soft lighting and attention to the all-important background. Just wonderful. Great shot.

Wow, what a nice compliment!! 😀 You made my day, Stefano! Thanks~

Amazing image here – look at that face, what nightmares are made of! But on the other hand – if one is an artist the colors are gorgeous! So I’m loving this photograph.

Thanks Mary! I actually think he has a cute face!! Although he’s only the size of ~half a match, would be a bit more scary if they were larger animals 😉
August 14, 2013 at 5:46 PM
I got my eye on you!!!
August 13, 2013 at 4:54 PM
Or two very large ones 😉 Thanks for stopping by, Lyle!

Thanks Ed! 🙂
August 14, 2013 at 5:47 PM
They ARE beautiful, aren’t they ? The first one has a cute face; the second one seems to be sneaking up on someone 🙂
August 14, 2013 at 6:07 PM
They are the coolest insects I know! 😀 Thanks for stopping by
August 14, 2013 at 6:14 PM
Wow!! I’m speechless. 🙂
August 16, 2013 at 4:59 PM
He looks nice, doesn’t he? 😉 And also, he posed very friendly for the camera!
