Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens (NPS), Washington DC
Summertime at Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens is rich with photographic possibilities. Many species of dragonflies and damselflies thrive among the lotus and lily ponds of this National Park - the only one dedicated to aquatic plants. I loved the way this Blue Darner dragonfly was resting on a lotus leaf and casting a shadow that created a bit of an optical illusion.
