    Great trio of shots with some really fantastic lighting to them - mind if I ask what you were using for the lighting?

    The second shot really stands out - great sharpness on those massive eyes!

    Wow, 2 is amazing. Great focus, great colors and crisp. Love #2 because of the detail but they are all great.

    Thanks for the comments ;)
    these were all shot with a Canon 40D with a Sigma 105mm macro lens, for light I use a Canon 430ex off camera mounted on a Novoflex flash bracket then diffuse the light with a Lumiquest softbox, all shots handheld,,
    thanks again for looking and commenting

    #2 is spectacular, really holds my attention and draws me back for another look.

    All are excellent! But #2 is so special because we could never get that much detail with our own naked eye, let alone get that close to a dragonfly without it fluttering off. Wonderful color as well.

    Excellent series - the second and third stand out for me.
