A short series showing a Green Heron unsuccessfully stalking a dragonfly. The clarity in the first few could have been better.

#2. Closer

Awesome series, Craig. Great composition. I believe she got her breakfast.

Thanks everyone for the comments.
Flyhigh, I was probably about 40 - 45 feet away from it. It was taken using only optical zoom, no digital.
Square One, I had no idea they ate them either. To be honest, it wasn't until about the third shot that I realized what it was doing.
Thanks again everyone.
