Nor do I :-D, but it is a beautiful shot.

Thank you very much, Lee. Well, I guess we're both in the same boat when it comes to dragonfly identification. :p:lol:

Dragonfly in the early morning sun. Second photo it seems to be doing a "Linda Blair" imitation. I'm sure that went over a lot of the younger heads in this group.

Definitely not macro, closest I could approach was a 1:7, then cropped.

From the movie "The Exorcist" when Linda Blair spun her head completely around. BTW, I've never seen the movie, just clips of it.
