    Anyone know what this is? Looks like the love child of a mosquito and a dragonfly. Or an alien from one of the Star Wars movies.

    Don't have a clue about what it might be, but cool pic! I like how the pink seems to highlight the "bug" ;)

    Wow, no idea what you photographed here, but WHAT A PHOTO! :shock:
    So good. Such well chosen DOF, plus the focus is perfect, so is lighting; and dancing around the mosquito-dragonfly until the flower was right behind it was GOOD!

    Not a fan of the cropping, but that is one beautiful image. The color is just explosive.


    BTW, i HATE bugs!!!

    Very sharp image, nicely framed by the background.

    Very nice! As sarahsmom mentioned especially I like the way the pink highlights the unknown bug
