15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

This is a photo of two dragonflies mating that I took while on a walk through a local state park. I was walking along the lake when I saw a little garden, so I stopped to take some pictures of the flowers and little critters. That's when I ran into these guys. What struck me was the shape they were making was almost a heart. I couldn't pass up this photo op.
