Love the colors and detail you captured here and the gossamer look of his wings. And oh that face! Thanks for sharing this very interesting image!!

Thank you Heater. I am glad you appreciate the beaty in details. They say that the Devil hides in details. But I know God is there to. I use to have a 100mm macro for those shots but I lost it about at the same time as I got my 100-400mm for birds. So I am learning to do macro shot with my 100-400mm.

You found great beauty in this capture Yves and when I think of how intricate subjects like this are I'm often awestruck by how incredibly complex and detailed the tiniest creatures of our world happen to be. So keep on clicking because photos like this really matter.. and good luck working with your longer lens!

Taken on the hand rail of my patio. Sory for the bad focus. The shot is not intended to win a grand prize but is good enough to present you the impressive details and colors of the dobsonfly. Some of you may appreciate.
