Here there be dragons

I was sitting on the front steps this morning, waiting for a mouse to scamper by so I could get a picture, but those little buggers are fast.

Instead my patience was rewarded by a passing dragonfly.
He settled on faded iris stalk and posed with a saucy air.

"I'm ready for my close-up!"
Quite a different fellow from the blue beauty I captured three years ago (if you haven't seen that one, do take a look). As with the others, you can click on the photos to see them larger.


  1. What awesome pictures! It's face is so neat to see up close.

  2. Thanks! It helped that he/she held pretty still for a long time so I could take a lot of pictures from different angles. Take enough pictures, you're bound to get a couple good ones.
