Dragonfly taking a well deserved rest. I watched this little critter zipping by, diving, chasing others and even mating frantically for quite a while before it finally gave me a chance to take this photograph. I don’t know what drives these things; but if we could tap its energy, we’d have no more fuel shortage.

The photo is of a blue dragonfly, pondhawk or Libellula of some type. I have had trouble identifying it, so anyone knows what it is I’d appreciate your letting me know.

Photo data: Olympus E-3, Sigma 105mm lense; f/2.8, ISO 100

My focus as a photographer and digital artist ranges from traditional photography to PhotoArt compilation and the less explored world of abstract design created with natural elements such as smoke, oil and water.
