[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photograph is taken what to the return of the garden near my house. The stake that supported the rose in the flower bed of the rose was built. A golden color dragonfly was on the stake when suddenly seeing. When I often observed it, the operation that stopped in the stake for several minutes, left there once, and returned to the same stake was repeated.

The wind was a little strong on this day. Dragonfly's both wings were left to the wind and moved up and down whenever the wind blew.
Because this kind of dragonfly has not seen so much, I don't know an academic, formal name.

- Cropped and resized for TN
