30000 Facettes

30000 Facettes
I was sitting on the veranda enjoying a cup of coffee when this four-spotted chaser flew in and landed on my leg. It sat there for a while resting so I had time to grab the camera and go macro on it. Tricky to set the focus but somehow I managed to get this photo of it's impressive eyes. Bigger here.
