Spanish Common Darter

By johncob
Whilst relaxing at the side of the pool one late October afternoon as the day was cooling down, this Dragon Fly kept doing hawking flights from the same perch. As it was sluggish compared with most I managed to get within inches and the attached image is the outcome. The detail I think has come up quite well.
Thank you to all for comments made against previous images. They are encouraging -- especially with only having a DSLR some 9 months and a member less than a week.

Thanks for your favourable feedback. I got so close to the subject ( hand held of course ) it was almost posing. That makes a change
