Mother Nature's Helicopter

By teocali
An in-flight Dragonfly - I think it is a Male Southern Hawker(Aeshna cynea) as opposed to a Male Common Hawker(Aeshna juncea), but I am sure somebody will put me right Smile Taken while hovering over the swimming pool from a distance of 3.9m

Many thanks for your support of my last upload, with a special thank you to Zoran(Bzox), Lynne(LynneJoyce), Ken(franken) and Richard(MossyOak) for their User Awards - all really appreciated Smile

One of the best 'in flight' captures I've seen!
Such wonderful detail and such a tiny subject to focus on.
