Red DragonFly

To comment about this photo, I've been browsing wikipedia, and I found that there are a variety of shapes and colours on this insect. It is a predator of mosquitoes, flies, bees, wasps, spiders ...
This dragonfly posed for me and it bore me to make several pictures from different angles and distances. This picture I took just 10 centimeters from the insect.

Wow! I have never seen a red dragonfly. That makes is truly dragonish! Now if it only breathed fire! - Thanks for sharing this! So cool! - And just yesterday I was surrounded by dragonflies, blue ones, green ones, brown ones, and blue/green ones, but not a single red. I will be watching out for those now!

Dinopas: Gracias por alagar mi foto. Todo el mérito es de la libélula que aguantó pacientemente a que le tomase la foto "perfecta".
Rachel: For me it's the first time I've seen a red dragonfly. Amazing!

Hello! Thanks for your comment and sharing your own photo of red dragonflies. The little red ones I saw near my boat were similar color, but very small, no more than about 1-inch in length, if that. The one in my SDP post was about 2-inches long - a giant by comparison. The green ones I saw did remind me of Huey helicopters, both in color and shape, while the blue ones looked like pilots with darkened visors pulled down over blue helmets.
