I want to see what the damselfly look like in mag rate a bit higher than the usual 1:1 so used some attachments to take some shots. In general its not hard to get the eye in focus but with a wafer-thin dof the body is always going to miss the focal plane. This one not too bad I thought. I really like the colours captured here....the female species has a greenish thorax unlike the male. (blue)....could have gone overboard with the saturation but held back. 

Hope its a nice view and comments welcomed.
