Author's notes

I saw a single dragonfly that seemed to be trying to maintain its location in the air near a small eucalyptus tree. It was not landing on the tree but flying in the area between the tree and the trail I was on. As the wind had picked up, I guessed that was making it harder for the dragonfly to stay in one spot.
