Lens-Artists Photo Challenge#99: Old and New

An old hacked tree with a beautiful new dragonfly. Dragonflies as a species though have been around for about 300 million years! They spend much of their life cycle in water as nymphs (often 2-3 years). As adults, they may only live a couple of months.

      Thank you Tina. I was going to hunt through my archives then found these two recent photos and thought I could get them to fit the challenge
