I have been after taking a better shot of this dragonfly for ages! I think he/she must have been disapointed to find the pool empty!!

Thank you for the comments and support on my last upload and a big thank you to Tony (bromley-smith) for his help and advice
Best wishes Carol Smile

My sentiments exactly. Doubt if I'd even see one flying about, never mind photograph it. Excellent work, Carol.
