look into my blue eyes

I learned something interesting about dragonflies today...they are very territorial, and if you sit there patiently, they'll always come back to their spot. This little guy would flit off, then return, over and over for me. Each time he left, I inched a bit closer until I got so close he almost kissed my lens.
He's kinda cute...!
That is too cool! Fav! Wonderful patience pays off!
