面纱(The Veil)



On this hot afternoon, I was running out of subject to shoot.

Out of a sudden, a dragonfly landed on a plant in my little garden. I was attracted by its translucent wings and the interesting patterns on the wings. I tried out a few shots to make the wings the main subject but failed to capture them satisfactorily.
Instead, this shot of the translucent wing half covering the face of the dragonfly like a veil of a woman became my shot of the day.

Luck sometimes does play a role in getting a good shot.
I shall try again on a close-up shot of the translucent wing the next time I come across the dragonfly…
