I changed the rotation ;)

What a lovely set of dragonfly images! We're really enjoying them. For some reason, it seems to us that this one and the baskettail above it on the list should be rotated clockwise 90 degrees. Is that because that's the way we always see them? Isn't it interesting that a rotation gives us unease? Was this orientation deliberate on your part?

Actually, this is just how I took the shot, but I see what you mean....most my shots I just crop and post....too lazy to photoshop them. Thanks.
