Image of the Day

I captured this Dragonfly yesterday out in a cornfield. All I had with me was my infrared-coverted camera and a 70-300mm zoom.

What's fascinating about this second image is the itsy-bitsy flies on the head of the dragonfly. Click on the image to see a larger version. What in the world are they doing?

Grooming the dragonfly?
Looking for tiny morsels of food??

Big fleas have little fleas,
Upon their backs to bite 'em,
And little fleas have lesser fleas,
and so, ad infinitum.
