This was one of the prettiest dragonflies that I have seen.
When I first saw it, it was on a leaf in the garden, and I almost missed him because he matched that leaf so well.
So, I followed him around until he landed on something that he stood out against.
It took a while, and I guess he was tired, because he stayed quite a while on these rocks.
He didn't fly away as I closed in on him.
This was the closest I could get with the lens I had on the camera - not my macro one which would have done a great job with his details.
He was beautiful, and I have yet to see another one like him - perhaps this summer I might get a chance.
My eyes will be peeled.
