Wild Wildlife: A Nice Shot on a Good Day

I am proud of this close-up of a dragonfly, which I took at the pond outside the zoo's birdhouse--not because it's the best shot ever, although I do like it, but because in order to get it I had to lean 'way over the wooden railing in the hot sun and position the camera, at arms' length, right in front of the insect. If the weather had not broken, becoming relatively dry and cool and pleasantly summery, after having been, for weeks, very like a sauna or a more humid version of hell, I would never have been able to stand it long enough to get the picture.
