... or Orthetrum albistylum as Erland identified it earlier (by thorax only!). It looks even more prettier while moving whith golden refections from the waving wings.
Notice two stripes of lace shadow from the wings on the grass. :D
... just begin thinking... those two things in front of its head could be the legs of the fly it was eating! :shock: :-k

The meaning of beauty is in sharing with others.

Noticing of my "a" and "the" and other grammar
errors are welcome. :D

A beautiful, full spread, dragonfly photo Nikola. Excellent focus on the body and wings. Good Job. :wink:

Nice "classical" dragonfly picture.
The two white appendages are seperated by som distance and are not that long, so it's a female.
