The Belly of the Dragon

Libellula quadrimaculata Linnaeus, 1758

The belly of the dragonfly, that is. This Four-spotted Skimmer (Libellula quadrimaculata Linnaeus, 1758) is glowing gold from the backlight. This is a species found throughout the northern hemisphere, from North American and Europe through to Asia. I exposed for the sky and used some fill-flash to lighten-up the shadows.
