Photo of the Day: Hide & Seek

While I was taking photos for the Sunny 16 article, I came across this little dragonfly hiding in the plants. He was very, very well-blended with his surroundings and so entirely unafraid of me. I don't think he was more than an inch and a half long!

I got right in and snapped several nice close-up shots of him.

I only wish that I could have gotten closer so that you could see the actual segmentation of his eyes, but the plants were all in the way and I didn't want to scare him off. I've uploaded this image at a higher resolution than usual, so feel free to click on the thumbnail!

What kind of critters have you seen in your back yard lately?
