Now THAT's a macro! Fun, vibrant, dramatic, close shot, Bente! It certainly deserves its centered composition. Perhaps just a bit deeper dof, but no real complaints here. Just a fun, interesting image!
Yes,it's a great composition.Maybe a touch soft on the eyes, can it be sharpened more?
A really good photo anyway, exudes character.
Well spotted and taken.

You Say he was clinging to your jeans, and his eyes are THIS big!
Very nice Bente, this is a face I would not like to meet unxepectedly at midnight in a dark ally.
And thanks for you wicked wit - always appreciated.

Cons: noise, little unsharp
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you Bente!

Big eyes and a smile on his face!
The sharpness is good and I like the detail on the eyes.
Very well done and thanks for posting.

Bente this is on superb macro the DOF is superb the whole of the compound eyes and the fons are in focus which is very rare as these sort of shots usuallly have very resticted DOF which is not the case here, congratulations on it.
As to an ident I am fairly confident that it is a commmon darter Sympetrum striolatum I have a boook that compairs the faces of the various darter for shape of eyes and the black areas under and round the eyes if you wanted I could try to scan you a copy?

Fantastic macro Bente - very sharp and clear. It's always facinating to see these eyes in large size and you captured them real well here. I fully agree with Robert about the ID.
