Andy great entry in a Bugs Life Contest! Voted for you here and in contest.

The pictures of insects always creep me but then when i look at them for real they have astounding beauty that one would never see otherwise. When i was a small child i climbed our back yard fence and when i got to the top there was a glowing bug there. I was thrilled at this as i had no idea there were things in my back yard like this. I still at 63 get a smile when i think of this.

This is the best ever ! Great Job Andy!

Artist's Description

An extreme close-up of a Common Darter, or Darner, Dragonfly perched on a young bracken frond. The image shows the complex structure of its compound eyes and the facial hairs, and the menacing spikes on the forelegs used for holding prey - all details that we fail to notice when we see one flying at the lakeside on a warm summers afternoon. This one is for Rosy Hall!

About Andy Astbury

Andy Astbury

I am a full-time Natural History and Wildlife photographer from Cheshire, in the North West UK. As well as taking photographs I teach photography at all levels and also specialise in digital workflow tuition and colour management. My passion is really for landscapes and seascapes together with macro photography and my beloved Norwegian Sea Eagles.
