Dragonfly.

I have been waiting a very long time to capture one of these dragonflies, and when I finally get the chance, does it land on a beautiful flower?.......No!..... it chooses a support wire of one of my hanging baskets. So I have to get a chair from my house and climb up and attempt to capture it while trying not to fall off! :D
I think i've nearly caught up with everyone! just a few more to go!
Best view this one large!
