By the way, your friend looks like some species of Meadowhawk - a rather large group of dragonflies (probably different from any we have here, but same basic body plan). They are perchers, and some are rather bold & unafraid of us.
Thanks Mole,

this one is a female of a black-tailed skimmer, a percher and as long as you move slowly they simply don't notice you.

The guy

Oh .. I see my post yesterday didn't make it (I lost signal just after I hit the post button so it's floating around the ether somewhere)

That is a wonderful series Ronny ! I enjoy seeing both the 'full body shots' so I know what the subject is and I'll know what it is if I ever see one around, but I particularly love the abstract in insects (eyes especially) features - these hit the bullseye right in the centre !
