Light Wednesday

I was hoping the photograph would convey just how red the wings looked on this very golden dragonfly in the afternoon sun. It reminded me of all the times I tried to photograph the diamond bright raindrops on the backyard trees, when the sun finally peeked through the clouds after a rain. The yard lit up like a Christmas scene every time, but the photographs never captured the tiny globes of shining light everywhere.
So, I followed this dragonfly to its perch. Its wings glittered and glinted like they were made of precious jewels. How could a camera grab an instant of light like that, I wondered.

(Photos should be embiggened.)
