Orange Dragonfly
Photographer: Andrea Popick
Location: Lakes Regional Park, Fort Myers, Florida
This was the first time I had seen an orange dragonfly. I spent about 45 minutes taking photos while several were constantly flying around. I was delighted when this one stayed still for a few seconds and I was finally able to get a photo of it that captured the beauty of it's sparkling translucent wings.
