Lovely -- I had a few dragonfly shots yesterday too, but nothing so nice as yours. You've inspired me to try again.

Thank you all for your comments.
To baro-nite: It was pure luck that this little dragonfly sat higher than the others and I was able to hunker down and get a different angle to shoot. That made all the difference. It is all about the light, isn't it?
