Extreme Damselfly Macro Images

An overcast sky early in the morning resulted in some very sluggish insects. This Damselfly was so sluggissh that it allowed me to get close enough for some 1:1 macro.

cropping the images during posst-processing resulted in some extreme macro images featured here.

The secret to getting close enough to this damselfly was to not let my shadow fall upon it.

What you see below is a shot from its behind. what appears to be motion blur is actually its wings.
