What Makes This a Photo of the Day? There are several elements in this photograph that really work for me, including the contrasting colors of the sky, trees, and airplane, which underscore the simplicity of the composition, and the slightly imperfect reflection in the water. I also love that the airplane makes me think of a dragonfly surveying its domain. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
