Photo of Saturday: Dragonfly

This photo is taken by Shikhei Goh in Indonesia. And it is one of the National Geographic Photo Contest images in 2011. Goh seems to take advantage of his friend who has helped him by spraying water to simulate raindrops. The original was taken during a sudden rainfall. It is a great occasion and being able to find such a helpful partner must be great.

What I see in this photo is the harmony of fragility and endurance. The transparent wings of the dragonfly and the tiny legs seem so vulnerable that you can't conceive the power of resistance of the little creature. Doesn't it give some inspiration about handling our problems?
