Still playing catch up with BP Favorite photographers...came across this one What detail in the dragonfly and waterlily....stunning....=^..^= #11482901

To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


He sure picked a pretty water lily to land on but it seems as tho there was a slight problem - one wing kinda got a little bent upon landing. Took about a nanosecond for him to straighten it out, tho and off he zoomed. (I was about ready to call in the "dragonfly medics". :) :)
