When flat isn’t.

An Eastern Pondhawk dragonfly (Erythemis simplicicollis) was spotted along Delta Road at Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge, Prince William County, Virginia USA. This individual is a female, as indicated by her green coloration and white terminal appendages.

The preceding photo was shot at an aperture of f/6.3 — notice the depth of field is a little too shallow at that f/stop to show the entire length of the dragonfly’s body in focus because she is perched on a small rock with her head/thorax a little higher above the ground than the tip of her abdomen.
