Fantastic. I assume this is taken with a macro lens?

Nice crispness to these pictures.

Thanks a lot friends!
The pictures are taken with the Canon 100mm/f2.8 macro lens and a ring-flash at f16. It wasn't that cold, Crazyrayman. When leaving there larval skin the dragon flies have to dry there wings before they can fly.
It takes a few hours. Best time to take photos.
