While hanging out with the Heron at the Chattahoochee River yesterday, the place was abuzz with dragonflies. I have to confess, before picking up a camera a couple of years ago, I found these creatures to be a bit disconcerting. The way they would dart and dash and dive made me think of them as overgrown bees; but now that they have become fodder for photography, I find them fascinating!

Isn’t that face the absolute definition of bug-eyed!
