And boy could it dart! I was exhausted by the time this fellow settled and then only briefly! Nice colour though and always worth the effort ( I try telling my other half that!) Thanks for looking, Sylvia

Should have stayed where you were when you first found it.....They have a habit of coming back to they're territory perch, normally the first place you see them......

Great image all the same......

Great colour in this image, and Ade is spot on. If you see a dragonfly perched 99 times out 100
it will come back to that spot. What I like doing is placing a new perch in a territory & see how
long it takes the dragonfly who's patch it is comes to try it out.

Lovely shot, but your ID is incorrect, this is a Scarlet Darter, Ruddy darters have all black legs and a more waisted shape to the abdomen

Yes it needs patience to capture these amazing insects and you have done well here. I photographed one today but I don't think that it is as good as this.
