[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
shutter time 1/160; f11; ISO 200; Sigma 150mm macro.

The intention was to come as near as possible. To this end i focussed on the shortest distance and moved the camera to state if sharp (be possible only the small dragon continues sit long quietly enough and that was fortunately this way). A large number of foto' s made with as aim this way sharpen possible.
Photograph afterwards of the made, 100% crop something did not go because then a part of the head picture remained therefore restricted up to 80% and afterwards tightens up. It was put an experiment this way sharp and I am myself, however, satisfied concerning the result.
