Dave, how long did it take you to get this amazing photo?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:-
The Common Darter (Sympetrum striolatum) is a dragonfly of the family Libellulidae native to Eurasia. It is one of the most common dragonflies in Europe, occurring in a wide variety of water bodies, though with a preference for breeding in still water such as ponds and lakes. Adults are on the wing from June until November - occasionally into December.

Looks like radar on its head,Dave.Some of my bee close ups appear to have as many eyes as a spider.The eyes of an insect seem to be far more complex than our own.Yes, it is a truly professional mug shot.

This was sitting on a fence at Martin Mere WWT at Burscough. It took a few minutes to carefully set up my tripod and work progressively closer until I got close enough for this shot.
