Given to fly

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Tiziano Hurni Cranston

As a child, I believed that dragonflies were the inspiration behind the invention of the helicopter, and since then have found the fascinating. I found this gold dragonfly on my mosquito net and decided to photograph the back of a dragonfly to get a better look at the mechanism that enables them to fly.

Location: Bali, Indonesia
