[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was recently discovered that dragonflies employ a particular optical illusion, termed motion camouflage, to stalk other insects that invade their territory. The research suggests that a dragonfly can move in such a way as to project itself as a stationary object while speedily attacking its victims. These findings illustrate for the first time how dragonflies use complex camouflaging techniques during aerial combat.

However for this case... certainly awaiting for me to have a photo session with this fella. Shooting with different POV and camera settings, this is the one I like. Comments and critiques are most welcome.
