S-a-D Challenge Day 16 by RavenousDrake S-a-D Challenge Day 16 by RavenousDrake
Species-a-Day Challenge, day 16/30.

Finally got a dragonfly! :shakefist: These things are usually very skittish and won't let me get within 3 feet of them. But this one was bizarrely cooperative. It sat rather patiently as I leaned over and snapped away at it, my back aching in protest the entire time. For as clearly as I got the focus on its eyes, it was worth the pain.

Comments are always appreciated. :)

I was about to assume you were magic until I realized that thing on the bottom was a twig and not its prey.

That would certainly be a once-in-a-lifetime shot, and I'm a little young yet. :P
