Up close with a Dragonfly

Up until now, I have never had the chance to photograph a dragonfly.
For some reason, around me, they will not stay still for a second.

That’s not including the giant one that landed on my back at the mall and decided to make lunch out of me…Ouch!
That one I’d have preferred to have been a little more elusive.

But yesterday evening while I was out watering my little veggie garden, which by the way is doing great, I spotted this little fellow.
(I actually think it’s a young female, but anyhoo’s)

I would’ve liked to have gotten a little more ‘up close’, but as he was right in the hayfield amongst all the clover, I figured getting any closer might scare him off.
But I’m pretty happy with the photos I managed to get.
