    A while ago I got a great close up shot of a butterfly's head and never thought I would get another chance to get so close to these flightly creatures - yet today I got that chance again. Though I have not got the lowkey background to this one, I have managed to get a great closeup of his head.
    Taken with Canon 400D, sigma 150mm, 1.4 teleconverter, speedlite 580M2 and softbox

    Great captures.
    Lovely details on the butterfly.
    Like the capture of the dragonfly aswell...the dark background makes the dragonfly stand out.
    Welld one.
