[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
"Brachytron is a monophyletic genus of European dragonfly of the family Aeshnidae containing the Hairy Dragonfly (Brachytron pratense), also known as the Hairy Hawker.
The Hairy Dragonfly is named for its hairy thorax, distinguishing it from other hawkers. It has a long, narrow pterostigma[3] (the coloured coloured, chitinous patch on the outer region of each wing).
The antehumeral stripes are usually thin and green. The Hairy Dragonfly has coupled, oval-shaped markings on its abdomen, blue on males and yellow on females. It is smaller than other species in the genus Aeshna. It is the United Kingdom's smallest hawker." [source - Wikipedia]

What a beautiful dragonfly.
To improve the picture you can try putting the Focus on the eyes and to keep a little more space around the subject. Using a large f-stop can increase your sharpness/dof
