Dragonfly on Eucalyptus
While geocaching with my niece in September '07, we came across this large dragonfly resting on a eucalyptus tree. I tried more than a dozen times to get a shot I like. I ended up using a flash in the broad daylight and only then was I able to capture any real detail. He was high up on the trunk, so even if I'd had a tripod with me, I don't think I would have been able to get a good shot.
