Dragonfly at rest.

This picture was taken in early July. As I was making the rounds in the garden I stumbled on this dragonfly, totally inert on a leaf. I was able to take the leaf and deposit it closer to where I could take a better picture. The dragonfly was catching the rays of the sun to warm up. I loved those colors that one can find on them. In this case, green and brown seem to predominate. It must have stayed inert at least thirty minutes before flying away.
