I was on holiday some two weeks ago enjoying a refreshing dip in the pool. I noticed this gorgeous little dragonfly hovering over the pool and repeatedly alighting on the same spot ..... time for a few shots I said to myself as I hastily clambered for my camera.

While approaching it cautiously, I circled this beauty looking for a complimenting background to contrast it against. As I homed in the last few inches with absolute stealth, the dragonfly propped up its legs and took this unusual pose reminding me of a ballet dancer about to start the act ..... luckily I managed to grab a few shots of this cute Ballerina.

The image should look better enlarged, hope you find the shot to your liking.

Have a good week,
Joe Smile
