The Intricacy of Nature (8)

A dragonfly sitting on a plant in our garden.
He was sitting very still, so I could take a lot of shots ^-^. I still couln't get a fully sharp image, though, which I tried to do by choosing a bigger diafragm number.

To still get a sharp photo, I photoshopped two of the good ones which had different depths of field and superimposed them by making one the photos a layer and dissolving it in the other photo. To get a good result I used the erasor and the crop tool for some finishing touches.

I think it came out rather well and I don't think you can really see where I editted the photo. If you do, please say so, so that I can improve on my photoshop skills ^^

I really hope you guys like the result and does anyone know how to get a shot like this one, of a close up animal and still get an overall sharp image?

Thanx for your help and comments
King Regards,
Fleury
