Challenge #65 in the Macro series. Hosted by Michael Piziak.
Challenge has finished
Submit a macro photo of a subject that you just came across randomly. From the author of this challenge: I strive to bring challenges to the community that are not repeats of my previous challenges. I have strove, tried very hard, to offer challenges that are fresh, new, and unique to my past challenges. It has become more and more difficult to deliver new and fresh challenges that are not repeats of my past challenges, but I consider it a challenge to myself to offer new and fresh challenges to the community that aren't the simple repeats that other challenges often deliver Who am I? I'm a 15 year U.S. Biology Teacher, with a master +30, and a U.S. Scientist (retired). View my photos at: http;//www.piziak.com email me directly at: michael@piziak.com

Dragonfly landed on the sidewalk in front of me as I was walking into the building at work. Grabbed the point-and-shoot and bent down close before it flew away.
