This rather silly lady must have become disorientated and flew into my lounge yesterday evening, where she buzzed around angrily for a while, before coming to land on the table top, and I managed to take a couple of images. I then put a plastic food cover over her, so that she didn't do herself any damage overnight, and in the morning she agreed to climb onto a twig for me, and I carried her outside and quickly grabbed another image before she flew off.

Yet again another rather stunning set of macro/close-up macro photographs depicting this rather gorgeous Dragon Fly, stunning natural colour and exquisite detail running throughout.
