Dragonfly Mosaic of Color

It is amazing how the macro lens can alter our perception of anything our human eyes see. I used to be afraid of Dragonflies as a child. Seeing their world close up makes me more curious about them instead of fearing them. And to 'look' through the wings and see the magnificent colors that penetrate through their mosaic outline is just fantastic!
