There was one night I went camping in the central Florida area a little north of Okeechobee. I could barely sleep that night because it was freezing (yes, it does actually get really cold in Florida). It was so cold I couldn't keep my face out of the sleeping bag because it hurt. Since I could not sleep well, I woke up pretty early and knew I wasn't going back to sleep, so I figured I would watch the sunrise. I grabbed by camera and was waiting for the sun to come up and as it started to shine over things you could see everything was dew soaked. I was just casually walking around and then noticed this dragonfly. I thought it was dead and was frosted over. I took a picture of it and only then was when I realized it was just covered in dew. I had never seen this before, so I thought it was really awesome. It then saw it start moving its front legs, wiping off the water from its eyes a little bit at a time. It was a very neat thing to watch.
