Smiling Dragonfly on the Yuba River

This dragonfly sat upon this branch on the edge of the river, and as I crept closer and closer, taking it's picture with each new step, it flew away time and time again. But it kept coming back to perch upon this very same branch, until I got so close I could see it smiling for the camera!
