Melting Icicle

Earlier this month I visited Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.  Nearly all the west facing rocks had large icicle formations on them.  On my way out of the park I decided to stop and get some photos of the icicles.  Since it had been above freezing they were all slowly melting.

This summer I was hiking in a coastal forest in North Carolina and noticed this dragonfly perched on a sun drenched leaf.  The shaded background helped to make the image a little more dramatic.
