Black tailed skimmer close up. These dragonflies are very patient models or maybe rather brave ones. I captured this skimmer in Botanic Garden on big rock.

Hello Grzegorz,
Very nice extreme macro with wonderful sharpness on the eyes.

Great macro of a dragonfly face and eyes! Focus is very sharp and the details are amazing. I like the POV and your cropping of the photo.

Hi Grzegorz,
I love these photos of dragonflies when you can see the eye facets. Great close-up in your face photo.
Nice job,

Hello Greg,

As usual for you, super well done macro. Looks like an old man after three days of continuous drinking: swelled eyes and unshaved. :-)

Cheers, Petru

Stunning details!
This is a fabulous macro -- and I would not want him any closer -- too much razor burn potential

Hi Red,
A very nice closeup of this dragonfly's compound eyes. Excellent details and colors. Thanks a lot for sharing.
Sorry :D later.

Hi Grzegorz, amazing portrait, superb macro with splendid details, very well done, ciao Silvio
