I think it’s pretty much an established fact that bugs have better facial hair than people. Yet you don’t see a lot of insect mustache or beard fetishism, do you? Go figure. :o)
By the way, this photo features a common green darner dragonfly, Anax junius. I actually found two of these at rest this year, which is atypical in my bug-hunting grounds. (Though I once had a very placid one on the hedge around the house one year!) I biffed either the focus or the framing on most of the shots I took, but this one seemed to have a good balance. The only thing that makes me really displeased is that glare spot, to which I applied a few different strategies for removal or softening but without much success; the results were too unnatural, so you have pretty much the original. So too much lip gloss on this one, but the ‘stache hides it well (enough).

I’m sporting a rather fine moustache myself at the moment. It’s for Movember. More info here: http://uk.movember.com It’s to raise awareness to change the face of men’s health. I draw the line at lip gloss though.
I’ve actually got the full beard going, but it was pre-Movember. Better light diffusion on myself than my insect subjects though. :o)
