I just happen to prefer the other species' colours pattern, seems a bit unlikely for a dragonfly.. But this one is beautiful as well!

I see what you mean about yours but I think this is much nicer with its big green eyes :-) and much clearer shots!

I thought it was pretty big but Wikipedia says it's a "small hawker dragonfly" so I'm not really sure! I'd say it was, at least, 6-7 cm long.
