Day 52 of my ‘A Photo A Day’ project.
Sadly, this dragonfly was found dead in our garden (one of our cats was playing with it, so that was mostly likely the cause). After picking it up and studying it I was amazed at the detail and intricacy in every part of it. The part that stunned me most, was where the wings joined the body, almost machine like. The colours, eyes, legs and wings themselves were also absolutely incredible. I hope this is a fitting tribute to an incredible insect, I will certainly always remember it.
