Steel eyes & silk wings

While at Camp Kiya, some others and I stumbled across this dragonfly, which was injured and had trouble flying. We took turns holding it, careful not to injure it furter. I had my camera with me, since I pretty much carried it around everywhere I went while at Camp Kiya. So I took photos of this dragonfly for at least 20 minutes, trying different angles and settings and posing him on the ground, branches and logs. This was the best shot I got of him.
