Dragonfly at Rest

by EarthHart in Wildlife, in all its forms

A male Emperor Dragonfly Anax imperator
One of the Hawker Dragonflies. I had been watching it hawking over the Well Pool, and saw it catch prey a few times. After a while it would fly to the flower border for a rest. Each time it landed on the same plant, it's favourite resting place. So I sat down in front of the plant & waited, and was rewarded with this shot.
