Beautiful Jon Klein Photographs

One of the highlights of my recent weekend trip to Mendocino was a mini photoshop camera RAW tutorial from wildlife and nature photographer Jon Klein.  There are things you can't do in photoshop, however, such as add the exquisite dewdrops to a dragonfly like the one shown here which Jon captured in his original photo.  Jon explains "one foggy morning in early fall I was out for a walk near Willits and found this Meadowhawk resting on an old Star Thistle head.  The sun was starting to shine through the fog, but the dragonfly was still too cold and wet to fly."

More on Meadowhawk dragonflys can be found at the website bugguide.net but the photos can't compare to the one above.
