This male Broad-Bodied Chaser came to the pond yesterday. As soon as I saw it, I put a small cane into the garden (leaning out over the pond a little), so that it was taller than the surrounding folliage. He decided it was the ideal perch to watch for prey!!

Thanks Mick, Hilary, Kath and Rod for your lovely comments.
Yesterday was glorious sunshine and there's more today, though the 'gentle breeze' was quite strong and the poor dragonfly had to cling on or be blown away!!

We don't see these in my part of Scotland so I'll try my best not to envy you too much.

Superb.

Stunner! Would be happy to take this kind of pic.

My only suggestion would be to use a stick with a bit more character ;o)
