    Another wonderful series. You captured so well the iridescence of the wings, and the detail of their 'faces'.

    Absolutely wow!
    Their photos should recompensate your for your having to go past all those blue ones on the banks of Wümme when you were on your canoe and had to try and (successfully!) defend your being first in the canoe tour ... erm: race? Tour? Race? Whatever.

    Wow. Now I'm wondering: should I save on a good WIDE wide angle lens? Or on a real macro? Or will all my money just evaporate like it has always done, anyway? :scratch:

    These are sooo enticing to go try take the same kind of photos, but I doubt I'll ever be able to do so!

    Number 3 is just outstanding –I'd nominate it for photo of the month if I knew exactly where to post the nomination. And number 1 is, uhm, sexy.

    thank you all for the very nice comments and thank you very much for the nomination :D
    Corinna, the choices in life eh ;) Its not terribly diffecult to take bug pics, but you need patience and a steady hand. Its all up to you what lens you're gonna get next......but if you go for macro, make sure you get a difuser for your flash.....or that little hat :)

    Awesome! #3 is a true winner and stands out the most

    Damsels generally are quick to fly off, nice capture on your hand!
