    Not really a bug expert but these fellows were flying around at a nearby park and lake where I took my son to play. Wasn't really prepared for shooting them but I like this one frame (among many misses). Still learning the camera.

    E-PL1 + SMC Takumar 100mm Macro
    ISO 400
    f/8 (I think), 1/180

    Nicely done - good detail. Couldn't resist a little basic pp (auto levels and smart sharpen in CS4).

    From my fly fishing days in the last millennium I recall those are called "damselflies". Very similar to dragonflies, but they fold their wings upward when perched, whereas dragonflies lay them out flat horizontally.
