I’m not very good with insects as my varanda has very few visitors, only my resident Caterpillar! I would love a beautiful Ladybird to come and visit oneday but never expected to see a Dragonfly (I have never seen one before either). It was nearly dark but I took loads of pictures, only a few came out ok though, and hope that you like this one.

    Gorgeous light Ingrid – that is a trademark of yours – the light is always perfect. Especially love the light along its body.
    PS: These are really difficult to shoot, especially once they’ve warmed up and get very skittish (and this was late in the day – so it would have been completely warmed up). I find it easier to shoot them early in the morning when they’re basking in the sun and getting their energy up.
