Artist's Description

Camera : Fuji FinePix 2800Zoom
Taken at my wildlife pond (Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa)
This is for all you insect-lovers out there!
.
This Dragonfly (Odonata) has donned her Spring finery, a bright blue, lacy little bra! Caught her getting a bit of a suntan on the rocks next to my pond last spring just before all the males arrived!

Sometimes the period just before spring arrives is always filled with a few hollow promises – dragonflies appear at the pond, the Peach Tree starts preparing her blossoms and then, suddenly, a cold front dispels the promise of Spring.
.
I have not been able to identify her, if anybody can help, I will greatly appreciate it! You’d think it would be easy with that tell-tale blue band, but nowhere can I find a similar picture. It could possibly be a young Dropwing Dragonfly male (Trithemis stictica) that the colours have not fully developed yet.
