This summer's dragonfly
2011-08-19  I haven't seen many dragonflies this summer - none in the garden.  So I went out yesterday to take dragonfly pictures at the municipal greenhouse gardens - and found one (this one) almost ceaselessly cruising his territory around the edge of a pond.  When he rested briefly on a reed I snapped this shot.

Many thanks for the comments on yesterday's picture.  Many of you commented on the perspective.  Yes indeed - I was lying on my back shooting upwards.  The things we do for a picture.
