Dragonfly at high noon.

The image shows a dragonfly perched on a flower. When I heard that our municipality had decided to designate old allotment gardens for 'developement', I followed my impulse to try and preserve photographically their soon-to-be-vanquished beauty. My toolkit comprised of Pentax [Z1p], M42 lens mount and a tripod.
