Critters from the Backyard

What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? The most exciting and fun thing about this shoot was the dragon fly that followed me around the garden, so I could photograph him. I would take a few shots and he would fly away, only to return to my next spot. He would let me get really close, take some photos, and then, he was off to the next location.
