dragonfly & a little motivation

Outtake from the book.  Photographed with Nikon D300, 60mm micro lens.

These days, the dragonflies are out in force, and I've been dying to get a good photograph of one.  Of course, they're zippy little buggers, so it can be really hard to capture a good image.

This weekend, however, Marcus found one that was resting on a branch in our garden -- and seemed rather unpreturbed by our presence near him.  So I ran inside and grabbed my camera, and shot a ton of images.  Photo geek that I am, it was one of the highlights of my weekend.

In completely unrelated news, it's been a while since I shared a good video with you, so I thought I'd share one that's been on my mind lately.  It's courtesy of the very cool blog, Zen Habits -- and it's one to watch if you've ever needed to do or start something, and keep coming up with great excuses not to.  It seems like the beginning of the week is the perfect time to share it with you.
