Walking along a leafy residential street yesterday I came across this critter sunbathing on a fence. It didn't seem to mind me poking an iPhone in its face to get this picture, and dare I say it's not a bad picture from a phone camera (with some simple manipulation afterwards).

This is a Common darter, a surprisingly small dragonfly to see in the flesh up close – not quite 5cm long from head to toe. Apparently it's common to see them sunbathing like this.
