Eastern Amberwing 07

The Eastern Amberwing is one of the smallest dragonfly species in the U.S. It is only about one inch long (not much bigger than a wasp). This is a male. Photographed at the pond in Bob Jones Park in Southlake, Texas on May 30, 2009.

Note: The original image after edit was still somewhat flat so I did something I almost never do with my nature photos. Using GIMP, I lightly applied the Artistic>Cartoon filter to give it a little more contrast.
