Judy Royal Glenn Photography
My family and I went on a short weekend trip in search of waterfalls and beautiful fall foliage. We hiked to Frolictown Falls, and the highlight of that trip for me was finding this dragonfly.
When I first spotted him, he was exactly how you see him in the photo. I took several photos, and he did not move an inch. So, I got out my macro lenses and got real close and hoped he wouldn't fly away. He never moved.
I don't remember him being there when I first got there, so I don't think he was dead. I had to stand in freezing water to ge the shot, and I accidently splashed water on him while moving about.
I named the photo "Plod" because it was the opposite of "frolic" since we were at Frolictown Falls and he was not frolicking.
