extreme DOF obsession

I've been experimenting with dof using the "lean in and out" method on insects to achieve an artsy ghostly result. The subject mostly becomes the bokeh.
This dragonfly didn't seem to mind, thank goodness, but I did waste a lot of "film"..... lol. I wanted to get the tip of the leaf in focus and preserve just a touch of eye detail while keeping some defining outer lines. If you go original you will see the patterns on the eye surface and a little detail on the leaf.
