Red Dragonfly to the Rescue!

The mosquito-eating red dragonfly.

The red dragonfly feeds on mosquitoes and we are lucky to have several hanging around a pond in our backyard. I tried photographing this zippy insect in stop action, but the results were not great. However, when one landed on an agapanthus, I was able to capture our backyard hero.
