Albuquerque Bio Park's new Dragonfly Sanctuary Pond is the first of its kind in the U.S. A stream bubbles from a rock desert landscape into a large pond with plants for dragonfly perching upon, and a wood deck for humans to perch from and observe.
In this view is the nearby large glass mosaic wall created by Laura Robbins.

You're capturing well this glass mosaic wall by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle about which the different speies of dragonflies are flying around the pond or flowers. And, we can see other insects, such as the bee or the centipede. So, it's the mosaic wall with warm tones expressing the lively motion of the nature.

A dragonfly sanctuary is a new one to me, never heard of such a thing but its a great idea, I could not count how many times I have lain perfectly still trying to photo these creatures in the wild, but its incredibly difficult. I guess this will be a great place to visit when its full of its winged visitors.
The mosaic is beautiful, the colors are very striking. And even though I can see its a fine work of art, the spider on the left would still send a shiver down my spine, he does not look like the friendly kind!
All the best
