If a dragonfly lands on your head

Dec 2, 2019

It took me forever to find these photos! They’re the same series of photos originally as the black and white dragonfly photo. I couldn’t find the photo in my file(s) that I had posted, so I had to find the originals and redo them. And I don’t think I showed you the other photos, just the black and white one.

They were taken July 19, 2019.

Hope you enjoy!
