jeepers creepers.....
a common skimmer(dragonfly?) seems to me, very uncommon, although smiling, in this straight on macro image, with the huge eyes, antenna, etc. I wonder if the big camera lens appears alien to the skimmer? Olympus E-30 and Sigma 105 macro. July 2010

Thank you for your vote and comment. Macro shots have very limited depth of field. The photographer must opt for clear focus of the eyes first ( if eyes are involved). This creature looks so much like some sort of aircraft, complete with ball turret and radio antenna. Best regards....
