This is a Meadowhawk Dragonfly (A Saffron-winged Meadowhawk I believe) and he was very partial to this one bush. I love chasing these guys. He would
tollerate my presence for a while, then he would fly to the other side of the bush. But unlike some Dragonflies, he didn't
seem to have particular favorite perches. Each time he moved to a new spot and a different pose, this was my favorite. They
commonly rest with their wings spread wide and straight. But this leaf was more exposed so he had to hold his
wings down a little and put his back into the breeze. It made for a much more interesting composition.
Dragonflies or people, portraits look better when the subject is not so stiff and still.
