A Delicate Balance

As a yellow-bellied slider turtle tries to balance itself to bask on a log, an eastern amberwing dragonfly decides to have a rest on the nose of the turtle. I guess this dragonfly knew that older pond slider turtles tend to mostly eat plant material, so there was not much danger in being eaten. After resting on the turtle, the dragonfly eventually flew away.
