This must one of the coolest Macro:s I’ve seen!
Shot taken by shikhei goh
You can almost feel the insect fighting against the rain. Truly awesome picture!
From National Geographics homepage: (link)
“This photo was taken when I was taking photos of other insects as I normally did during macro photo hunting. i wasnt actually aware of this dragonfly since i was occupied with other objects. When I was about to take picture of it, it suddenly rained but lighting was just superb. I decided to take the shot regardless of the rain which caused my Eos 7D and 100/2.8 L Macro to get wet. The result had caused me to be overjoyed and hope it pleases the viewers.”

Stunning macro. That’s called nature in its tiny form. Love the details here. Reminds me of a animation movie “Bee Movie”. 😀

Wow! An incredible picture with the dragonfly looking like it’s holding on for dear life! 🙂
Exactly! I wonder how many hours there is behind that pic! I’m so amazed by this one! Voted 10, but that goes without saying I guess 🙂

That’s such a great image. Dragonfly is holding on! You can in a way, ‘feel’ what the dragonfly may be feeling at that point. Thanks for sharing this!
