Rays Of Dawn by ageofloss Rays Of Dawn by ageofloss
In my opinion, one of the hardest things to photograph are the small things in the twilight using long shutter speeds -- just little breeze of wind can make the subject move from side to side in your viewfinder. I had to wait till 4am till the wind finally calmed down. I usually have fun shooting and if I hadn't been so determined to get this picture I would have given up the whole thing. So I really hope you like it :)
The insect in the picture is a common hawker male (aeshna juncea).

Full view please to see the detail, but I hope that's a given :)

Edit: made this one available as a print.
