Beautiful shot of a beautiful insect. I can see why they inspired Lalique.

First dragon fly that I have seen on my pond.

Well done, may it be the first of many.

Decades ago when I lived in Sydney I'd escape to idyllic rivers.
You'd paddle for a bit and then stop for cup of tea and some herbs. 
Significant other's friend expressed concern about a pretty blue dragonfly that was hovering about.
Na you don't have to worry about them, they've got no nasty bits three of us assured her.
Then the dragon fly did one of those sudden direction changes they do, straight at her head.
Ah, happy times...
Certainty disturbs me

I sincerely hope she was a female and dropped some eggs.

I have a small wildlife pond in my garden but getting photos of its contents can be difficult. So I bought a small 12 litre aquarium which allows me to get close to he underwater 'action'.
