[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I'm incredibly proud of this photo, even if that doesn't mean much. The dragonflies never stayed still for long, so I decided to stand very still with my camera pointed toward the favourite place of one of the dragonflies. I had observed it landing here and then flying off and then landing here again.

I took it with macro settings, without a tripod.
