Beautiful Dragonfly..........Ruddy Darter (Sympetrium sanguinium)

Certainly living up to his name, this beautiful red Dragonfly was darting from mossy rock to mossy rock......eventually he settled and decided to have his photo taken.....:o)

Excellent Janey, I saw two at the local Reservoir a couple of weeks ago, but they seemed to have sort of green/blue iridescent wings. This is a brilliant shot, better than some in the books you buy.

Marvellous photo you must have a good camera lens Janey. Dragoflies are hard to take photos of because they don't usually settle for long.

I think he wanted to sunbathe Linda.....and after a few darts around, settled for the pic. I trimmed it later before posting, it's a smashing Leica lens.

I can't get really good close ups with my camera as it's getting on a bit now but it still takes a good picture.

Just been for a walk across the fields so I am about to post a few more pictures. It's certainly a lovely morning with plenty of sunshine and blue skies.

Great photo - we had some in the garden this year but despite running around trying to photo them, they didn't stay still long enough - pretty to see though

Amazing shot Janey ! I will have to try talking to mine next year if it will help me get some shots as good as yours...;-)
