I found this awesome dragonfly perched high in the sky on a little branch, on the very edge of a small pond.
The sun was just about out of sight, and the beautiful hues of the sky created the perfect backdrop for this photo,
Looking up at a dragonfly is a new perspective for me, so I personally think that this photo is pretty neat.

    I LOVE dragonflies, as they are GREAT subjects for some incredible photos.
    Although, I’ll admit that if one came flying at me, I’d run away screaming like a little girl… Don’t ask…. lol
    Thanks so much for the compliments!
