This photo was taken with Nikon D7200 and 55mm lens.
Photo was shot raw and in high res and then put into lightroom. Some adjustments were made for contrasts and a dehaze was used.
I took this photo at Townshend State Park in Townshend, Vermont, USA. I always keep my camera on hand and right near the office this dragon fly happened to land, with an unobstructed view right near the contact station on a lilac branch. I raced inside to get the camera and was able to snap a few quick shots before it flew off again. To me this shot was about imaging if I had just flown across an ocean and this gorgeous insect landed right in front of me. I'd be like there's no way I want to miss this moment. I try to see things in my own back yard with just as much excitement as if I had traveled long distances.
