Was out and about photographing birds when this little dragonfly came and buzzed around me a few times then settled nicely on the ground nearby, allowing me take a few photos before he shot off searching the skies for more prey. I just love the colouring of this guy, especially the orange tips on his wings (which are just out of focus, didn't have enough time to change my apeture!!).
