Perfectly Posed Dragonfly

This photo was taken at Zachary Park, about one block from my house. I was waiting for an osprey to fly back to its nest that is in this park, got bored, so I walked over to a nearby pond with yellow foxtail in abundance and noticed this dragonfly just perfectly posed on it. So, I started taking pictures of it and later realized, after zooming in, that all 6 legs were in clear sight.
