Smile for the Camera

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Brian Clopp

A beautiful orange dragonfly landed upon a branch, and after taking hundreds of pictures I would go to walk away - but then it would chase me and zip a circle around me before landing back on the branch; maybe it was my reddish hair, or maybe it was calling me back to take more pictures of it. She seemed to smile and embrace the camera.

Location: Los Angeles, CA, United States
