I took dozens of pictures of this guy who was holding on tight in the gusty breeze. There is no way to tell if you have the focus spot-on while looking through the lens. You don't know till "post" when you develop the pictures. Well I got a few good ones. If you can see the little hairs on its head and abdomen, cell structure of the wings or the spiney thorns on his legs, you know you have a pretty good shot. There are better photographers with better equipment that could have drawn out the cells of the eyes (just search dragonfly on flickr.com), but this doesn't disappoint me. I love the design of a dragonfly wings, always unique, always spectacular. Just think what we might be able to do with four arms and two legs.
