MY VERY FIRST RED DRAGONFLY!!

I know its a "basic" shot, nevertheless THRILLED to capture him and even had to write about him. It may seem like nothing to you; BUT THEY ARE RARE IN MY AREA and to see him; omgosh i just HELD MY BREATH and caught him and had to write about it too! my blog

Will upload the shot when he was holding onto a water droplet; didn't include it here because this is how I found him "naturally" acceptable for the standards of TREK !! :0)

thanks for viewing!
