Young Dragonfly

This picture was taken in early June. I love taking pictures of dragonflies, young or mature. In this case, I had noticed that several young dragonflies liked to hang off some leaves near where i was. I patiently waited for one to lightly grab one of these grasses and approached it carefully. I was able to get quite close and got amazing details such as the little hairs on its back or the dew on the head and eye. Incredible!
