Photo Shoot for a Dragonfly


Yesterday, while working in the yard, there were hundreds of dragonflies swooping about doing their thing...presumably, hopefully, it is eating mosquitoes.  I noticed one golden one perched on a rose hip.  He stayed there for quite a while.  I took a couple of photos of him with my phone.  He then seemed to say, "Go get your good camera.  I want a photo shoot."  So, I walked into the house, retrieved my camera and began taking photos for about 15 minutes.  Sometimes, he flitted onto another flower, seeming to say, "Hey, look at this side;  Get a top view!  Look, I'm smiling!"  It was a fun photo shoot for a cute little guy, probably dead by now.
