That's a good illustration. I don't know which one to choose from. I tried flasing -1,3, and I liked it in most cases more than without correction.

Great composition, I like the one with the flash better, more details and very clear.

personnellement je prefere celle sans le flash car on voit un peu les facettes de l'oeil.bonne idée.

Great post showing the decidedly better outcome with fill-flash use. The goal of insect macro is to reveal as much detail in the subject as possible. Under exposure will always rob the shot of it :)
Very well done!

Hello Paul, you know i use my flash generally and i always use flash for dragonflies :-) i'm absolutely agree with you, but there is something wrong in this picture. Cause i like the without flash shot too! Yes, there is more details on the flashed one but the other looks great too, no reflections on the eye and has still great details on the eye also.
Result : Normally i use flash and i will use flash :-) But for this post, i prefer the one without flash!
A great idea and educative post!

I prefer the contrast on the photo with flash. However, I prefer the lack of reflection in the eye on the photo without flash. Overexposed reflections are the bane of my life when taking macro shots!

Hi Paul !
Both are great shots, but I prefer the one without flash. There is reflection on the eye, and the colors are more natural, and details are very good. It was a nice idea to compare these two shots, Ilike it. very well done !

Excellent and very instructive job. Staggering exactness of colours and detail. Great POV, exposure and contrast. Superb Macro.

to flash or not that is the question.Well I think the photo with the flash is best for the same reasons the others have stated.Well done. Bob
