16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Dragonfly Kitty

Dragonfly Kitty I was visiting the Birmingham Botanical Gardens and taking pictures of the water lilies and dragonflies. After downloading and viewing this photo I couldn't imagine why a cat appeared to be in the water looking up. A dragonfly happened to be in the right place to give the illusion of the cat's nose and whiskers while his eyes are small rocks that were in the water. The dragonfly and rocks helped to create a very interesting shot.
