[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found what is Sympetrum sanguineum - Ruddy Darter.
This species likes to rest on the leaves and envelope diverse objects. They hardly stop, them always to fly and not to stop for a lot of time. In this time it rest on the molehill.

This has a good POV Rimantas. Good DOF, detail and color also. These things can be a real challenge to go after! Well done.
Thank You!

Hi Rimantas,
You found a beautiful dragonfly. It's always an impressing moment to see these interesting insects. I love them so much. Howard is so right, it's realy always a challenge to make a good and near shot. I found some friendly d'flies this year and they let me come very near, about 10 cm. Perhaps you are interested and have a look. Have a nice day, greetings, bye

Your dragonfly seems to be in a prayerful pose. Interesting POV and sharp colors. Well done and TFS. : )
