The life cycle of the dragonfly, from egg to death of adult, varies from six months to as much as six or seven years. Female dragonflies lay eggs in or near water, often in or on floating or emergent plants. Most of the life cycle is spent in the larval (naiad, aka nymph) form, beneath the water surface, using internal gills to breathe, and catching other invertebrates or even vertebrates such as tadpoles and fish. In the adult (flying) stage, larger species of dragonfly can live as long as four months.

elegant geometry and division of the picture by the dragonfly's abdomen and the twig resulting in a beautiful composition. Optimal point of view, nice natural colours and high sharpness ad to the quality of the picture.
Best wishes, Peter
who said dragonflies were easy to photo, there is always going to be something out of focus at this angle, perhaps that is why so many take them from above, but this makes a better photo.
