Death of a dragonfly . . .

. . .on a fork handle in our garden. We caught sight of this lovely creature in this rather odd place one evening last week. Next day it was still there, and slowly it died. Rather sad, it is a bit magnificent when you come to look at it closely. Strangely enough DH had been reading about them not long before and discovered they only live a few weeks in this stage of their life. Seems a bit of a waste of so much splendour!
