Stunning shot, old chap. Their eyes are incredible.
Ray: Thank you, Alan. They are beautiful critters.
You certainly get a real mix of wildlife in your garden Ray.
Ray: Indeed so, Brian, and that was one reason for the creation of the garden.
I never tire of seeing them but find it difficult to capture them with my camera.
Ray: True, then true, and try again, Mary...eventually now will develop a successful technique...I spend hours at this, and now can usually make shots of them. After the brain injury I had to go through it again.

The complementary colors in the blue/yellow shot are amazing. Is that little critter smiling ???
Ray: I told a blue joke, Bonnie.
Their heads look like the faces of cartoon characters.
Ray: I expect they have been often as inspiration for cartoons, Tom.

They have rival colour schemes Ray.
Ray: I think it helps them with sexual selection, Chad.
dragon flies are my friends Ray... they eat mosquitoes and some days as the sun gets low... i can watch about 25 of them hunting in my garden....petersmile
Ray: Yes...they are wonderful to have in the garden, Peter.
The first one has a lovely cartoon like expression
Ray: They are fun to watch up close, as they continually change their expression, Martin,
