This tiny dragon is one of my favorites. I don't see it every day, but when I do, I cannot resist getting down and dirty and grabbing more images :)

Great shot.

This is a male Ground Skimmer (Diplacodes trivialis). The female is green with black markings like the male and quite common. They usually perch on the ground and rarely flies above 1 meter in height. &
