Four-spotted Skimmer, the hunter

By doerthe
This 2 inch long Skimmer is totally harmless to humans, but his service to us as a hunter of flying insects is astonishing. Tireless dragonflies are flying through the air and only sit when feeding on an insect or when in need of rest.

That looks a particularly nasty beastie Doerthe, but you've captured him/her beautifully.
