14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
we dont take time to change our perspective, to look at the fine detail, to test our vision and truly see the living word that is right under our nose, at least not enough. In this image I had laid down in the wild grass at a local park here in milan, italy. This alien like dragonfly was often perched on this sole, two foot tall limb, but had taken flight and began to pass right in front of my lens. I pulled the trigger trying not to get to excited and blur the shot.. the end result was pretty intence, this tiny dragonlfy seems larger than life , with the angle of the setting sun truly giving life and a fantastic golden hue to its already intricate wings.
