Here is one taken earlier this year in Queensland, Australia.
Olympus E3 with 50-200mm lens.

Cheers.

Great shot!

Can you tell us how you got it? I am intrigued by the background, or lack of it.

Thanks Chris, it was taken at a wildlife park and the wire was strung above the fenced enclosure. The background is, from memory, the inside of the open enclosure in full sun, and is clearly out of focus, probably dirt or some other dry surface. In fact, when I took the shot, a family came over to see what I was taking a photo of, thinking I was shooting something in the enclosure, and scared the dragonfly off, so I only got one shot!

Thanks for looking.

Love dragonfly's, good picture, but would prefer to see it on a natural environment, I mean among some plants
