Battle Weary

By ringyneck  
I have seen big Dragons fly around before but never seen one static.....this one looks like it needed a rest after bossing the pool all the time.I am assured it's a Male Emperor Dragonfly.
Suffering from some noise as I have gone mad on the crop....see variants.

f 5.6, 1/500, iso100 and 400mm

Certainly been through the wars

The noise isn't that much of an issue really

Thanks everyone.....

Barbara...I think I am paranoid about the noise "problem"...on one particular site (birds) if there is noise of 00000.1% they will "advise" you on its whereabouts.......completely ignoring the subject you are portraying......LOL
I have had a few "Heated debates " about it before now !!
