A terrific shot of this dragonfly, the detail and colours are exceptional. You did well snapping the big boys, I did not manage a single shot of them but I did get plenty of the damselflies and some good ones of the silverwashed fritillary with its wings closed feeding on the brambles which was a first for me.

Excellent detail and background, Gary, and what I like most is the sense of movement in the wings so that they are blurred and the body can be seen through them.
