A dragonfly, unable to fly after a summer storm

After a violent summer storm, the clouds cleared and the lighting became soft and warm. I took my camera out to capture the state of a local park and happened upon a couple insects that were unable to fly. Their wings were still wet from the rain, and I can't help thinking they were shaken up as well.
