Variegated Meadowhawk

Variegated Meadowhawk, originally uploaded by photofox78.

Found this variegated Meadowhawk Dragonfly resting on a Fern branch in my garden. I'm trying to work on a way to reduce harsh flash refections in my macro shots, but it's quite difficult with Dragonflies. Their eyes tend catch any kind of light you throw at them. So far I've tried highly diffused flash, reduced flash output and even angling the flash head away at about 45 degrees. But no luck so far.

My next step is to try a modified version of the Better Bounce Card. I'll post some results when I test it out.
