Hi Duck Soup,
I don't know if it's ironic, maybe a little weird. Does it think the ornament is his mother? Anyway I haven't posted any wider shots on this forum but here is a link to the Karma site where I posted some shots a few months ago. I can't remember whether these were taken with my old Canon Powershot Pro 90 IS or my Panasonic Lumix FZ-10. There is also a damsel fly later in the thread that might be of interest. That one was definitely the Pro 90.
Those are some fantastic damsel flies and your work earlier in the thread is mind-bogglingly good!
I don't know if I am an excellent photographer yet but sometimes can make up for my shortcomings by using Photoshop. I did selective un-sharp mask on the dragonflies, leaving the background bokeh intact.
I just PM'ed JTL, asking him where he got his accessories and he gave me some links. Let me know if you want them and I will send them along.

Just popped in for another squint at this thread -
dij - fantastic shot there totally sharp - I'm jealous, but I have to wait until I can afford or justify a close up lens.
BE - really colourfull bug - excellent shot!

That is a red-banded leafhopper (Graphocephala coccinea). They tend to be very small, about .47 cm. So you must have had to get very close in order to get a shot like that, Bald Eagle. Actually, I recently took a picture of one myself. However, it is not as good as yours.

This is one I shot a few years back in my mom's basement. Seems that a small man was sneaking in looking for food all the time. Never did catch him.
