I caught this guy at the Sonny Bono Salton Sea National Wildlife Refuge in Southern California. What a beautiful creature. Little bit dark but he ignored me when I asked him to pose in the sunlight.

That's the trouble with uncooperative models! You still manage to capture the beautifully delicate wings.

LOL -- hawker/darner often are a bit obstinate when asked to perform something specific. This one at least did sit down anywhere for you, a fact to envy! :)
And the mood is so nice with those delicate leaves...

haha - when i saw the name of the group this photo is in "Dragonflies/Damselflies (Odonata) ", my first thought was, 'oh, dragonflies and selfies - interesting combo'

love the wing taking the limelight here.
