This really made me smile. "My, what big eyes you have... " Love the grasping feet too. Wonderful shot!

I've seen other similar type shots but this one is extremely well executed. Great color contrast, the width of the perch, and the depth of field draw you exactly where Craig wants you to go. Very nice shot.

Yes, I've seen this kind of image before, but the focus on the eyes is spot on and the wing position is perfect.

Excellence coupled with humour! What more could you want from this wonderful frame. Yes, this type of shot has been done before - but this is the best I've seen here! Brilliant job, Craig!!

A unique angle to photography a damselfly. I like those blue eyes!
