Artist's Description

A red skimmer dragonfly (Libellula saturata) perched on a reed at the edge of a pond. At one point while I was shooting, he turned his head toward me and seemed to be smiling for the camera. Note the effect of sunlight shining through his wings and projecting colorful shadows as a lacy pattern on the reed. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 300mm, f/7.1, 1/250 sec., ISO 100, morning sun, handheld)
