Fly on a wire

Just a dragonfly taken earlier this year at a local wildlife park.
Shot with my E3 and trusty 50-200.
Cheers

Very cool! The braided steel cable really plays well with the wire-like structure of the wing. Thanks for posting.

Thanks Nicolas, amazingly the two haven't died yet!
Having said that, a smaller mirror box body with the OM-D sensor would be nice!

Great close up, dragon flies in New Jersey, US are beginning to fly around in the Mid Atlantic US, you should definitely post your images on The Weekly Close Up, I find mine on ttwigs, your wire adds an extra area of interest,,!

Thanks, it wasn't there for long, I only managed to get one shot before some other people came and frightened it off!
