That's quite impressive, can you give some indication of how big it is - it looks like it could be 1/2 metre in size, but I am sure that it is much smaller.
Use of the flash has been effective here and certainly brings out the colours in the armour plating. The only weakness is that the dragonfly is facing away and not towards the camera. But otherwise I quite like this.

Very nicely lit up. I spent last night trying to get a spider but still has a lot to learn of using the flash and getting a close up shot. You have done it very well. I like it.

I really like this setting and angle. This shot really contains a lot - Berries, Lichens/moss, sky clouds ets and yet the shot does not feel busy. I like this al lot.

What really attracts me to this shot is the wonderful splash of colours from the deep blue sky and red berries. Also the way the wings are silhouetted against the sky. Considering you didn't have your glasses on (know the feeling), you did quite well.
I found the note very enjoyable and interesting, Robert.

I like the angle of the capture with the sky in background and the use of the flash is well seen.
Well done Robert.

Most unusual perspective Rob it almost looks like the fly is eating the berries. Great colour and sharpness.
