Popped into the garden with the camera in hand and after a few seconds, this dragonfly suddenly appeared and landed on a nearby leaf. Stayed for just 10 seconds or so before going, but grabbed 4 shutter presses, this being the best.

I think this was just the lens for this one - PP was just moving sliders around in Lightroom, and layers etc in Photoshop.

I did have to reduce the reds though because of the strength of the petals' colour.

Nice surprise for you and Darters tend to be a bit more relaxed.

I expect the occasional Damsel Toby - but darters, that's not the norm. :)
