'Fly in the City

This dragonfly was perched just outside the Chelsea brownstone where we lived for a week in New York. It stayed still until we tried to get too close. Its eyes were mesmerizing; see-through green domes like helicopters windows. And to think that this animal lives its life as a dragonfly for only one month, after as many as five years as a godzilla-like underwater nymph.
