I was able to capture this interesting view of a dragonfly on a trip to Florida visiting with friends. The image was taken in the natural area beyond their backyard where an alligator (or two) now resides. Dragonflies are my favorite insects. I love their delicate-looking wings and large eyes and the way they fly and can turn their heads. They are also beautiful and come in a great variety of colors. This “Green-Eyed Dragonfly” was hanging out on a branch in the wind and kept putting his wings down farther than I am used to seeing. He seemed to be staring right at me!
I entered the image in the Hillcrest Camera Club’s monthly nature competition for June as well as in the flickr “Wonderful World of Macro” insect-themed June competition. The image received a second place in both!
