Here's looking at dew: Dragonflies captured in stunning detail

 The tiny droplets of water magnify the dragonflies' beauty and reveal the details and bright red, orange, green and blue colours of the flying insects.

Macro photography, as demonstrated here by David Chambon, a photographer working in Doubs in eastern France, requires a decent light-source - and in this case it is the jewel-like droplets which capture the light so essential for these works of art.
The countless bubbles seem suspended like ornaments on top of the creatures, the moisture turning them into natural diamonds.

Photographer David Chambon, 31, said: 'I love capturing sleepy dragonflies in the morning dew with my camera.

 'They look like pure gems. It's always an adrenaline rush. You have to go very slowly not to disrupt them and to make sure they don't fly away.'

He added: 'I took these pictures at dawn during a holiday.

'I live five minutes from a natural reserve in Franche-Comte in the Doubs, in France, which is the perfect place for macro photography.

'I can't describe these moments because each of them is different and each time it's a surprise.

'Macro photography is a really beautiful area, seeing these insects so close to their intimacy gives me chills every time.'
