I was looking around our balcony through the mesh when I spotted this wonderful dragonfly. I Ran and brought my camera. I was not tall enough, so I brought a chair, and stood on it, and photographed it. My favorite part of this image is the background. It is a truck, which is blurred because of the mosquito mesh.
Dragonflies don’t sting and generally don’t bite people. They have been around for 300 million years. When first hatched, the larva or nymphs live in the water for around a year. People in Indonesia like to eat them for a snack. Having a dragonfly land on your head is considered good luck.
This image was captured with Nikon D5000 + Nikkor 85 mm Macro lens.
