[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This dragonfly nearly mowed me down on its quest to find a nice resting place (and very nearly gave me one in the process!). Once settled, I tried to sneak up on it to get this capture.

No tripod was used, so I crouched, and just as I prepared to snap the photo, I fell on my bottom - an embarassing moment to be sure!

Still, this insect seemed to understand that I meant no harm to it. Although I could've been more patient, taken several more captutes, and waited until it landed in the shade, I was spellbound by the flower it chose to rest on.

Well composed pic that shows good detail and sharpness of the subject. The DOF and BG are also both well done in this pic.
