[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Rock Dweller [Bradinopyga geminata] tries to settle for the night on a zinc wire in my garden. Probably for a change... This dragonfly is attracted by nature to sit on rocks, really, or on stones, or on old mossy walls in the shade or on dark surfaces so as to camouflage its presence. At the same time, it is sensitive - it flies off on seeing approaching photographers! LOL. But this one I got with a macro shot with a 1x zoom to avoid the shadow from the flash of the protruding lens unit falling on the subject. So I was about 7-8 inches. Near original picture - just about 5-7 points increased in contrast to bring out a bit of colour to this otherwise dull picture - but that is usually where this rock-dweller usually rests!

Namaste Dinu,
it's interesting, I've never seen such a dragon before, and you are the second member today who shows this beautiful insect.
Excellent shot, thanks and greetings
