[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my favorite subject, the head with the compound eyes of a dragonfly, a ground skimmer, in this case. Its compound eyes consist of thousands of individual light sensitive areas called a ommitadia. To shoot these ommitadia, one has to have a good balance of light and lot of patience.
