All week this dragonfly has been teasing me. He sits long enough for me to think ‘Ah ha! photo opportunity!’ but by the time I’ve rushed to get my camera, got the cap off and played about with the focus, he’s flown off laughing. Very irksome as I was thinking what a supremely handsome fella he was and I rather fancied taking his portrait.
This morning however I got lucky. He didn’t play hard to get and stayed long enough on the orchids by the fish pool for me to take these.
