All kinds in various colours and shapes! Just like people!

This first guy was up on a tree branch and let me get close enough to get all kinds of different backgrounds and bokehs!

The red little fella has only 3 wings...the 3rd got ripped off somehow :cry-an:
The other one is a damselfly...they are so skittish!

Great series Casil. The focus and sharpness all look pretty good, which is usually the hardest part of shooting these guys.

Thanks AntZ!
Yeah...thank goodness for long lenses... no way could I have caught them with the macro!
They are such shy little creatures but along with the pelicans, they have been my favorite thing to shoot this summer...mostly for the challenge of it!
