What a whopper!.....

We has a surprise visit from, just the biggest, dragonfly I've seen yesterday.  We had popped into one of our local garden centres for a bit of lunch and whilst standing at the far end of the cafe about 20 yards from an open door a huge dragonfly flew in, flew the full length of the cafe and landed on my husband's trouser leg!.....amazing or what?  Of course I just had to snap it to share it with you before it was safely carried back out to freedom......

Oh WOW!
They are a bit noisey but they are lovely - I think it is because we don't see dragonflies that often is why we love them so

I love to see dragonflies. They are such pretty green/blue colours. I'm glad it got back out to freedom.

Aw Annie, lucky he landed on a leg that recognised a need for freedom! They are amazing and lovely creatures aren't they.

Well done on getting a photo of the flying beauty! We have them at home but never get a camera out quick enough!

The wet summer has been hard on dragonflies (and butterflies) this year and I haven't seen as many as usual. Glad you helped this one to survive a bit longer.
