No, it’s not photoshopped – while out for a stroll in the UK’s Peak District, Mark Manders discovered this happy-looking dragonfly and quickly snapped some shots on his camera phone (good advert for the phone, eh – and no, we don’t know what make it was).

“It looks like a Pixar character,” said the 34-year-old. “It let me put my phone right against it. I didn’t notice the smiley face at the time – it wasn’t until afterwards when I saw the pictures.” Steve Prentice, of the British Dragonfly Society, has said that the female Southern Hawker’s smiley face comes from the ‘frons’ – the frontal area of the insect’s head, above the mouth parts.

Nature is freakin’ cool.
