This dragonfly just flew by while I was attempting to photograph birds and sat on that white post for almost 20 minutes without moving. I got within about a 1/2 inch of the dragonfly's face and it still didn't move away. I love its wings more than anything; they fascinate me.

this would score much higher with me if all that on the left was cropped out. aspect ratio detracts from subject. wonderful bokeh and very sharp. gl.
