great dragonfly shots Mike. how did you take them? in a studio? their detail is fantastic!

Thanks, Dale. The 'studio' was my conservatory with a sheet of white paper on the floor. The detail is down to the excellence of the macro of the Canon PowerShot A640. All I did with the shots (ie processing in Photoshop) was replace the colour of the 'white paper' background and bump up the contrast with 'levels', then convert to grey-scale to make them look more 'classy'.

These look great Mike, for both their natural history and artistic value!
