Dragonfly

The ponds at the Garden of the Amazon attracted dragonflies and I was able to capture this image of one, with the skin from its nymph stage attached to the lower side of the flower.

    1. In reality, I came upon the dragonfly a few moments before I captured the image. While it would have been interesting to watch the transformation, I missed it, but the story was still there to be seen.
