One of the best on P.A.D. Thanks Dave (Oy) PS. Look at the tiny hairs on the stems...

Its just a close up of a insect, nothing Wiganish about it.
And if I wanted to be critical about it I would say its actually a poor photo because what spoils it for me is the dead brown leaves that the insect is sat on.

It looks too colourful, has it been retouched. In might not be a living insect. Yet another camera trick.
But the picys good which ever way.

Yeah Alan it's a plastic one I bought at IKEA hahahaha!
This is a real live dragonfly that looks exactly as it did to the naked eye from about 1m away.

Dave, may I copy your excelent photo of my favorite insect? I want to show it to my friends in the USA.
I'm very wary of copyright and would not want to step on toes.
