Dragonfly, Assentoft, Denmark
Glistening in the early morning sun, this insect looks like a creature from another planet as dew gathers on its sleeping body. Captured in close-up one September morning, I found this dragonfly totally encrusted in diamonds as it rest on a twig.
Dragonflies, take on an unearthly quality as the water droplets form on them, but it is very difficult to find them and you must be very fast taking the photo because the dew quickly disappears.
