15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Flight Take Off
I was on my way home from work later in the day and almost stepped on this large dragonfly just sitting in the grass! At first I thought it was dead, but when I picked it up it clung to my finger and spent about 10min vibrating and shaking off water from the misty day. This image was captured just before take off.
