When I saw about 4 of these beautiful dragonflies circling my garden I never thought that one of them would land. To my surprise this one not only landed but stayed long enough for me to get so very very close that I fired off about 30 different images at different perspectives and distances. This was one of my favourite images as I loved just looking down at its delightful face.
