Frozen in Flight

I will be posting a series of images over the next weeks, of dragonflies in flight at my garden pond.  I know they are not perfect, may not be as sharp as most wildlife photography would demand, but – They were taken with my CELL PHONE, for  gosh sake.

I had to be very patient, very close, and very lucky to get any of these.

Here, I suspect the little predator is eyeing the bugs stranded on the water hyacinths in the pond. Or maybe those are dragonfly nymphs?

There is almost no post-processing done on this image, just some color balancing and my signature.

What do you think?
