With Eyes to See

One of the things about being a photographer is I feel that it makes you more aware of the environment and more appreciative of the small things in nature / around us.    

I think it's that spacey-ness that we try to medicate out of kids and that formal education tries to exercise from people and replace with structured fact and knowledge recall.
But, I digress..
This little guy was flying around the pool between various plants and after I held still for a bit, he let me get pretty close to snap a shot.  

The only (slight) bummer was I had the camera shooting JPEG, not RAW but I was pleasantly surprised by the JPEG's quality.
