An unusual dragonfly resting on rose plant one evening. It stayed for a long time and always returned whenever it was scared off. It was not seen here the next day though. The last photo was taken several hours later in the evening, accounting for the slight change in colour.
Interestingly, it's on this same rose plant and the surrounding hedge that several other Odonata species have been photographed including the regular Red Rockdwellers (Bradinopyga strachani) that spend the night there en masse >> http://www.flickr.com/photos/dotun55/943... >> http://www.flickr.com/photos/dotun55/830...
