I saw this little fella hanging on, just watching me, as I was watching him. Just minding his own business trying to be left alone in his "own little space", looking as though he wished not to be disturbed. When suddenly another little insect came crawling over to him, scaring the little dragonfly causing him to fly off as soon as I shot this photo. I entered this photo in the life category because that's what this photo expressed to me...life, no matter how big or small, it's still life, and we all live here together, sharing this space, trying to live in some sort of harmony together.

Thanks to everyone who cast a vote on my photo and left a comment, both negative and positive. Your comments were very helpful in showing me what I did wrong and/or right. This was my first challenge to enter, and I really did learn alot from the experience, and it's been a lot of fun competing. There is some pretty stiff competition on this website and a lot of very talented photographers. I may never be up to the quality of some of you, but it's fun trying and learning....thanks for the experience!....Claudia

Great title. Love it, but the photo isn't very clear. If it was more crisp, it would have scored higher in my opinion. I also would have turned the photo around so the head would be on the bottom and the wings on the top. It might have added some interest.
