[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Black Darter or Black Meadowhawk is a dragonfly found in northern Europe, Asia, and North America.

At about 30 mm (1.2 in) long, it is Britain's smallest resident dragonfly. It is a very active late summer insect typical of heathland and moorland bog pools.

...from wikipedia

Btw, in Europe is BD the smallest dragonfly (from anisoptera).

Hi Martin

You present us a superb picture with a high artistic effect. Indeed, the fabulous background with all these rounds is so well seen. The repetiton of the red colour of the plant as a blurred spot in the background is also very good. Moreover, the overall expression of the picture is very pleasant and it has the little indefinable extra that makes it an outstanding one.

Kind regards
