I spotted a red dragonfly in our garden this afternoon, so I decided to grab the camera to take a picture. I took one shot with the canon G6 but then my dad scared it away. I had to crop the picture, so the photo wasn't so sharp as I wanted. But later I spotted some other dragonflies, so managed to get really close to these.

There was a goldy-brown dragonfly on our chilly plant, and a blue one on the ground.

Thanks for those really nice comments woodmeister and bmullen. Here's one more that I took on the same day, but didn't post it because it was much plainer. I was surprised about the variety of dragonfly species. Maybe that's because I've never studied them before. I might read up on the net to find out how many different kinds there are in the world.
