This Blue Dasher Dragonfly is not actually smiling, but it looked like it to me with the face markings and head-on shot. Multi-shot image stacked photo for more depth of field/focus It helped that it did not move during the exposures. 400mm f/4 DO lens, extension tube, Canon 1.4X Series III teleconverter, shorter extension tube, Camera body with flash and better beamer flash extender.
What an exquisite photo!
Thanks! One of my favorite subjects.
