Self-Indulgence from Chicagoland, United States

I am amazed at the color, so many things we miss because they are so tiny to the eye and the details on the wings is fantastic!

25 Jan 2010 1:45pm

@Self-Indulgence: Thanks! Yes, i was totally fascinated when i first saw it. The pink dragonfly is around 2cm long and the details on the wings was so pretty when it spread its wings. They come in a few colors - pink, blue and golden brown.
