Dragonfly near a pond in Melbourne, FL


I used to think taking a photo of dragonflies was hard since they tend to dart around so much.  However, they usually come back to the same place several times and you can just aim your camera at that place and wait for it.  I tried to get close to this one and it kept flying away every I stepped closer.  But it always came back to that steel rod, and finally I was close enough to take the picture you see here.
