    needs backlighting to bring out the wings, catch the dragon fly and kill it, then immediately bring it and some plants into a studio and viola, perfect shot. After that spca will come after you.

    Noticed tt they have very specific features on the insect too.
    You mentioned backlighting. But the "facial" features must use flash isit?

    back lighting for this shot, like shots of spider's web and rain, the back lighting makes the web and rain stand out. A mini studio in your room is still called a studio, get one of those adjustable lights from ikea, but you need to be careful of the white balance. Have fun!
