I had a couple cooperative dragonflies letting me get close enough to take a couple dozen photos so I wanted to share my favorite. I just love the way it grips the flower head as if riding a stick pony hence my title pun. Their balance intrigues me so much since the body is just so huge compared to the rest of it. These wings caught the light giving the ride just a little more expression. The wings on this dragonfly are dark near the body, white in the middle and clear on the ends. We have a lot of them near the pond and they give me great pleasure watching them cruise back and forth.
