I took it at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum several years ago now, with an older camera with relatively low resolution and depth of field, and it’s not even entirely in focus, but I still like it.  There’s something about the bright red male damselflies peeking out of the front of the photo against the muted greens in the background that just seems right to me.
