Two male damselflies hangin' in the tall grass, looking like they are playing a game of tag.

Really good capture, I would have loved to have seen more detail of the dragonflies...or for a bit more of the grass to have been cropped out. Then you wouldn't have had that great fold of grass to the left hand corner though...

I like this shot a lot (but I love shots of small things mostly!)
I think I'd've preferred it more if there was a contrast in colour between the subjects themselves and the background. Still a great shot!
