I had heard about jewelwings and had only seen them from a distance in flight. When someone pointed out this one just sitting there I did what I could to take the best shot before it flew off. Liquid eyes, bad light, no time to make any adjustment of the flash or camera but I was quite pleased with the results. My pre-shoot configuration of my macro gear worked out well! Unfortunately after three shots the insect had enough and flew back a few feet just out range of my micro lens and extension tube.
