Well a bit of both worlds really. Grin I spent ages trying to get close enough to this dragonfly to get a decent shot, but it was chasing so many little fles I just about gave up. Then I got this shot, and at the time moaned at it for not stopping to rest somewhere pretty. BUT when I opened it up and saw the rusty wire .... well .......

A daily dose of iron can be beneficial, Jackie. I prefer mine in the form of a Guinness, but I guess this little fellow was happy to lick some barbed wire.
