Firstly, I would like to thank Moira (mrswoolybill) and Malcolm (saltireblue) for favouring my "Dragonfly Detail" with their User Awards.
Still at Harold Hillier Gardens, I found this enormous dragonfly sculpture hovering over the lake.
The only small vantage point was from behind and above it, and the area was in shade. I wasn't happy with the pictures, but did a bit of work on them. Its tail was so long that I couldn't get the whole of it in any of my shots without sacrificing its head and wings.
So, all of the backgrounds are of the lake and the reflections within it, and I hope I have given the impression that the dragonfly is flying over it. There are 4 versions and I really didn't know which one to lead with.
