Grabbing a bite

This beautiful blue damselfly was a difficult subject to shoot. It was very timid and it's hard for me to handhold shots if I can't rest my arms on a hard surface. But I couldn't resist him enjoying a snack on this leaf, so I went into autofocus mode and took this shot. Even with the black background I think it worked. I'm loving that bold blue color!
