Little Red Dragonfly


There is something about dragonflies, their lacy wings and the way the flit about. Their needle-like bodies are delicate and varied, in a rainbow of iridescent colours. They are like little fairies, landing on the tall grasses and dancing among the flowers.

It is the only insect I can abide landing on me. One stopped for a rest on my pink jacket while I walked.

There were so many that it was not difficult to capture this one with my phone when it landed on the railing, before it soared away.
