I really like the greens! Gives it an almost abstract feel. I hope you don't mind, I tried an edit with noise reduction and increased contrast. What do you think of it? If you don't want this edit posted, let me know, and I'll take it down.

Your dragonfly is absolutely stunning - well captured!
Bit of a breeding frenzy going on in my back garden at the moment - look away now if you're offended by insect porn

Pics here are totally stunning!
I rarely take these sorts of shots - so please be kind!!!!
I was photographing my Lavender tonight when this bee came along
it was dusk and so not too easy to capture it - but I had a go anyway

Sorry, but can some of you guys post what lenses you are using for these close ups? I only have a 28-300 lens and I'm looking for a macro, but don't know what to get, matching lens to picture would really help. Thanks if you can.
