We spent the last couple of days in Pismo Beach, it was a nice
place to spend a few days.
One of the places we wandered into after lunch was a garden store that had all kinds of interesting plants and things. The most interesting of them was this Dragonfly that buzzed me when I was looking at a fountain (his fountain?) Of course he froze when I found his perch which gave me a great opportunity to get some nice shots of him.
His eyes are extremely beautiful, you can see the hexagonal structure of the segments of his eyes in the shape of the highlight on his left eye.

This is another one of those subjects you can easily walk by without noticing. I was about to get in the car and he was down near the ground. His wings are not out of focus, they are actually fluttering. I think that's what caught my eye.
