I was organizing some pictures today and came across this picture I took of a red dragonfly that captured my attention one day while at the zoo last fall. We have blue dragonflies around here a lot in the summer, but I had never seen a red one before. I love the way the red pops against the green and how the iridescent wings sparkle in the sun.
Here’s the same image after I messed around with it in Photoshop to give it more of a painterly effect. Photoshop – all the fun of painting but without the mess.
