      Lovely photo.
      I wish I had such patience and ability.

      They should have named it the lapis lazuli blue dragonfly! :-)
      And yes, it takes a lot of time and patience to come up with a picture like this.
      P.s.: what kind of habitat is the area surrounding Austin? Grassland, desert?

    15. jim_mcculloch 70 months ago | reply

      tetabiakti, Austin habitat is somewhat varied; low limestone hills with mostly juniper vegetation (west of town) and fairly flat grassland with areas of trees, most commonly hackberries (east.) This photo was taken on the east side of town, under some hackberry trees.
