Crystal Lake, Illinois — The Hollows Conservation Area

I was walking through a wooded area when I spotted this tiny guy flitting low down the path in front of me. It was wary, and kept zipping off before I could get close. Finally, it settled in a patch of sunlight and allowed me to get close enough to get this photo.
