Dragonfly on Fish Hook - Sometimes Opportunity Knocks!
Photographer: Jenyfra Nelson
Location: Budd Lake, in Budd Lake, NJ
Story: 
We live on the largest natural lake in NJ, and have a dock; our grandchildren all fish and release as do we. One day, on the dock, my son (knowing i always have a camera around my neck) said, "Mom, please turn around quietly - with your camera ready." I did, and saw him, with a crawfish, ready to put on the hook for his daughter, in his hand. Against his white tee shirt, I saw this scene. The dragonfly flew over, and just landed on the hook and stayed for about 5 minutes, or about 25 photographs. I liked the water drop, and the delicate wings and enjoyed the whole experience. He flew away, and we kept on fishing, grabbing a nice 24" Northern Pike in the afternoon.
