When You Smile for the Camera, I Know They're Gonna Love It

~

A smiling dragonfly takes time for a photo opportunity on a corn tassel. I’m not sure if she’s resting, or just loves hamming it up for the camera.

It’s a happy coincidence that the color in the dragonfly almost perfectly matched the coloration in the corn silk. She seems to have an uncanny ability to accessorize.

(The title is a lyric from Peg by Steely Dan.)

  6. Sweet shot Rob, these things can be a bugger to catch still. I like the processing as well, really makes him stand out
