That is fantastic, Grzegorz. Such a clear image, with crisp details and perfect exposure. Excellent composition. Well done and TFS. : )

It's a wonderful macro capture.
Well detailed in a nice POV. Nice compo with green leaves.
I always find it's hard to capture these tiny fellows in a good focussed shot. Your posts encourage me to try harder.

No wonder people don't like them, they look like spiders with wings! Actually I prefer them to spiders, but then of course I would. And double 'actually' I prefer ducks more though.
He looks very sharp on the leaves Greg. Good lighting and colours. Nice one.

First of all Greg I love the detail you captured here, It allows me to study well its form. I'm fascinated by its head. Its a very awkward looking insect and not to colorful. Great post with excellent note, I really enjoyed this, Thanks.

Very good image, Greg. You've conveyed very nicely the grace of this critter, and your well chosen POV allows every detail to come out sharp. I like also the soft colors here, very suitable with the subject. Well done!

Wonderful close-up Greg. Amazing sharp details and great colors. Good POV and well composed. I was just telling Joanna how amazing I think it is that you two are able to shoot such brilliant shots without using a genuine macrolens. Well done & TFS!

I had to photograph some of these recently for landcare research (a government department) for their bug identification website.
The females were red and the males were blue.When they were mating,with the evening sun shining through them they looked really psychedelic!
BTW ... I've just had my first TN visitor from Europe. JohnnyMag from England came over with the Lions tour (why would anyone want to see their team get thrashed?)
It was great having him here and he had a good time.
He loved Bullock Creek,Greg...& I'm sure you will too.

And you talk about magic DOF in my shots? well getting this with only f:3.7 is not magic, is just incredible. I guess you where quite far from the crane to get this DOF, but still nice details is seen. Good job.

Fantastic shot, Grzegorz !
I recently "captured" a female (not so sharp as yours), so I made some researches to identify it, and I can tell you this one is a male.
Excellent focus and details, this is a great one, thank you !
