Those Amazing Insects

One of my favorite subjects to shoot is insects. I have found the best time to photograph them is early in the morning when the air temperature is still cool and crisp.

Sometimes You Just Get Lucky!

I was testing a camera lens for distance. So I decided to shoot this bird that was perched on a branch near the top of the tree. When I got home to view the shots I took that day, it was an unexpected surprise to see the dragonfly on the tip of the top tree branch.
