Now THAT is persistence! Good for you Shanna!! If we want it bad enough and keep at it, it eventually happens. You're proof of that ;-)

Good job! I tried the same thing the other day in the parking lot of a K-Mart with my point and shoot. Talk about an effort in futility.:lol:

Excellent shot.

So it took you 7 years... and dragonflies live for one day (so I heard).

Let's all take a minute to remember the 2,555 dragonflies that died to make this shot possible.

Actually dragonflies live at least 6 months (barring squashings) but the one day thing is funnier.

I didn't know they lived six months either. I heard they fly around and one day just land and die. Found one at work and it was perfectly intact with about a 5in wing span. Yes I took it home put it in a box and saved it for a 'photo shoot'. Live ones look better
