Golden-Ringed Dragonfly, Carsaig Bay
This spectacular beast landed on my jeans whilst we were walking along a boggy bit of coast path. My wife took a couple of photos of it and it seemed so docile and unworried I let it crawl onto my finger, where it stayed and I got some better shots. I particularly like his yellow furry jacket and antennae. Looking at his legs and feet you can see how he manages to keep hold of the flies he catches in flight.
