Last weekend I came upon this dragonfly while walking along the Große Laine in Jachenau in the Alps.
The dragonfly zoomed about over the water of the river for a while before landing on the face of a large boulder to spread its wings and enjoy the warm sunlight. I was able to get consecutively closer to take some pictures before a child popped up over the top of the rock, peering straight down at the dragonfly. This, of course, was a bit too much for the dragonfly, which took off.
I really love the comment of the child: “I guess it thought I was going to kill it.” – Spot on, dear!
