Dragon Quest

So, the search for the ultimate dragonfly eye photo continues. Here is a Common Darter head I snapped at the weekend at Dogsthorpe Star Pit, Cambs (19.9.04) [the head was at the time fully attached to the living insect, I hasten to add]. I like the way you can see the clearly-defined pseudo-pupils and the difference in size of the lenses of the compound eye over the different optical surfaces.
Surely, the quest must be coming to an end...
