Really an extraordinary shot. Double capture with super detail on the dragonfly's wings and (maybe) the wasp's eyes.

Superb image, Gene! Executed to your usual very high standards! You can even turn insects into works of art.

Great shot, I really like the angle/perspective you chose. So often I get stuck in the rut of the subject paralleling the sensor because of limited DOF; your quartering view is attractive and well executed.
Good light,
