There was an enormous dragonfly flitting around near the lake and I happened to have my camera with me. It would not, however, cooperate. I sat and waited for a good ten minutes, watching it zip past me over and over again, my camera held ready.
It never did stop.
But this one did. A pretty little red dragonfly rested on the rock near my feet, so I captured this one instead. Patience paid off in the end.
