I couldn’t believe my eyes. Out of nowhere a dragonfly whizzed past me and landed on a leaf just a few meters from where I was standing. I dropped my bag and got my camera out as quickly as possible, my hands tangled with excitement. The first of the season! No way I was gonna let this opportunity pass me by. I approached her as quietly as I could. I got closer and closer, but she didn’t bat an eye. I think she must have only just emerged from the water, looking hazy and slumberous. Then again, who wouldn’t need a minute to get one’s bearings after transforming from nymph to dragon?
