Revisiting this... one of my favorites!

Exceptional capture fabulous detail L/F

Beautiful!

Thanks so much Julie. Nature and her beauty knows no bounds.

Wow, incredible capture Alison. Love the detail. Fav

Really appreciate your comment Craig. I was within inches of the dragonfly who stayed so perfectly motionless, for just a short time. It truly was one of those 'one in a million' gifts to be given.

Fantastic capture Alison! Love! L

Thanks so much Veikko. I've never seen dragonflies like these before. They were unusually large and the first one I saw attracted my attention by its wings of GOLD ~ As the early morning sun fell on them.

Love it! Congratulations on your sale. ~ CLE

Thanks so much Cleaster. Very encouraging.

Congratulation on sale announcement and great.

Thanks so much Nandika.

Wow, what a stunning and fascinating macro!!!! Faved,

Really pleased you like this photograph Lynda. I don't have a macro lens and the detail comes from being literally inches away from the dragonfly. The lime green 'ball' was incredible and still a complete mystery.

Really beautiful!

Thanks so much Laurel. Such a pleasure to be able to share the exquisite beauty of this dragonfly with you now.

Great capture the detail is beautiful

Thanks so much Steven. I was at the local lake to take photos of the new ducklings ~ When I saw glints of gold in the wild grasses, several meters from where I was standing. The, what I now call ‘Golden Dragonfly’ flew away before I had time to capture the image that will be forever in my mind's eye now. But then I saw there were more ‘Golden Dragonflies’ hidden deep in the grasses and I knew I had to move VERY slowly. My camera was only inches away from this dragonfly to get the amazing detail in this image.

So AMAZING!

Phenomenally beautiful! You've done a splendid job in capturing such fine details!

Thanks Marlene. This image was not taken with a zoom lens either. At times it seemed as if the dragonflies were actually 'allowing' me to come in close to them in order to capture their beauty.

Beautiful work Alison ... I like the straight lines and colors!

Thanks Juergen. Image making becomes so much more interesting when the subjects you're photographing or painting also become abstracted into lines and intersecting planes giving directional force to the image.

great work sir

Thank you Rushan. I've never seen dragonflies like these before. They were unusually large and the first one I saw attracted my attention by its wings of GOLD ~ As the early morning sun fell on them. A moment later they were completely translucent.
