Congratulations!

You have obviously set a new standard for shooting DPC Macros and in the end making the Macro challenges a lot more interesting. You are a valuable member to have around :) Very nice work and congratulations on keeping the bug alive :)

Wow, Jacko! This is awesome.

This shot rocks! Congrats!

Holy smokes. I'm surprised by this one. Finished +7? I was only 6.85 when I went to bed ... looks like the systtem's "scrubber" worked in my favor.

Thanks for the great votes and comments guys.

One of the better damselflies entered for sure! Your insert is sharp and the background is exceptional. Great job.

Great shot. Nice hint of movement in the tail
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/04/2004 09:33:17 PM
obvious photographic excellence here especially with the crispness and shadowing that sets this way above the other dragonfly entries ... high marks from me ... ever think of adding
perhaps a little funky element to these pure nature pics ... might put these pics over the top in terms of the diversified dpc audience ... guess that depends on your personal dpc objective

Really fabulous macro. Great focus. Nicely blurred background. All the green really makes the blue stand out.

Great photo, but it demonstrates more green than blue, it would be a great "green"-theme photo!
