This dragonfly was perched on the tip of the beak of a stork statue. It stayed there for several minutes. I like how the sun was shining through the wings and left a shadow on the beak in the first photo. The photos are very similar but in the second photo it lifted its wings.
There are so many different species of dragonflies and I have no idea which one this is.

Excellent clarity and bokeh!
Thank you very much.
Excellent, Maralee! When I saw the images, I thought that you should get a medical professional to take a look at your fingers. On reading your post, I realise that they are not your fingers at all. 😉
I wish I could get on to land on my finger tip. But if I get too close, they fly off. This one stayed around for a bit.
Dip your fingers in honey and try again, Marlee – let me know if it works for you. 🙂
I will give that a try and let you know.
Don’t try it if bees and hornets are about. 😦
Nice capture and I do like the detail of the wings.
By the way, that’s Larry. He has a twin named Moe, but Moe’s coloring is a tad more toward a burnt red. You are welcome.
Beautiful. Can’t believe you were able to get such clarity!
