A personal selection of photographs with their stories.
Dragonflies are common in Brazil. I have often found them along the waterfront of a natural pond where they exert their graceful dancing along the shore and across the water surface. However, I photographed this dragonfly in the Botanical Garden in Belo Horizonte. At small pond, which contained a variety of water plants, I counted a handful of different types of dragonflies. Dragonflies in different colors and sizes. The warm sun shone almost perpendicular to this slender dragonfly, leaving a sharp shadow on a lush green leaf .
