The Dragonfly

Ok so the only time I ever manage to find a dragonfly large enough (I don’t own a macro lens), that stayed still long enough and he lands on the black poly pipe, instead of a lovely flower stem – so I decided to grunge this up a little with some textures in cream/mocha tones to make it a little more appealing lol :))
