14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

This image was taken of a small front yard pond, just a few feet from our dining room window. It's a lively place, especially in summer and spring. I happened to catch this dragonfly before it had pumped up its wings hanging from its empty carapace.
