Never knew darter dragonflies could open their jaws this wide. Busy demolishing a fairly large fly. Natural light shots in fairly strong sun unfortunately.
Last shot is an animation and make take a while to load.

Seen it before, but never catched it with the camera myself from what I can remember, and for sure not as nicely as you did here. Cool shots, a little bad luck with the sun though as you said.


I only do careful levels/crop/NR/colorba​lance, if needed. Thats just my philosophy, to each his own.
You're welcome to check my photoart (fotokonst in swedish) at http://sebastianfoto.s​e/ (external link)
Its swedish, but just press the menu at top for cathegories and view the photos.
I have a Canon S3 with two Raynox closeup lenses.

Thanks for the comments all :)
oddly the outer jaws hardly moved whilst this was going on- it was the shredding bits inside that were doing the damage.
