Its more than alive Jude....Its just showing the signs of wear from what is a hard life for a Dragonfly...This Four Spotted Chaser will die out in the next few days not to return until next May....Dragons and Damsels are sooooo interesting....300 million years on the planet and still going!!Smile

A rather beautiful close up photograph depicting this rather gorgeous Dragon Fly, beautiful natural colours and rather defined detail, superb.

Regards Nathan
