A moment with a dragonfly

I was wading through some wet grass by a pond this afternoon, looking mostly for some flowers, when this dragonfly landed beside me. He was quite friendly, and didn’t fly away even when I came quite close to him. These images are cropped in a little, and I increased the contrast slightly, but they are otherwise unedited.
Mike, I’ll leave it to you to ID this guy- I’m just happy to call him a green dragonfly!1East PM retreat at Providence Point_0018_edited-2

    This one is pretty easy to identify. I don’t think that there is another dragonfly that has that gorgeous emerald green color–it’s almost certainly a female Eastern Pondhawk dragonfly, though there is a slight chance it’s an immature male. (Adult males are a less spectacular shade of blue.) Your shots are wonderful. Dragonflies are pretty unpredictable when it comes to tolerating your presence. Occasionally they will let you get really close (and I have a friend who got one to land on this finger), but most of the time they will fly away when you get close.
