Pin sharp Dragonfly and I do love the post with the swirling vine cinging to it too!

Thank you everyone. This is the longest dragonfly in Great Britain and apparently is very common but I had never seen one before.

I think I have seen two in 30 years or so, both zoomed off the moment they saw me(g)
This is a superb macro Val, how lucky to find it stayed put long enough for you to snap it.

Thanks Leo. I spotted it and had to go indoors to fetch my camera fully expecting it to be gone by the time I got back. But it actually stayed on the plant sunning itself for quite a while so I was able to get several shots. This was the best one.
