Fleeting Rewards


The topic this week is reward.

I love trying to get a good photo of a dragonfly, they rarely stay still. I might get one half decent shot out of twenty. The reward is not the photo, it’s the ten minutes I spent in contemplation, watching these beautiful creatures.


The back garden, Dangar Island, Australia.

Note the tiny spider lurking under the leaf.
