Now that is what I call special!!
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.

I think Mick has been bitten by the green eyed monster.

Brilliant shot.

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.

A fine male specimen well photographed.
