Fiery tail

Hot days bring dragonflies on the hunt and for a rest they find our bog garden ideal so it was not all that surprising to find a dragonfly at rest on a stem of a pitcher plant.

I guess it is also a good spot to wait for a female to come along to deposit eggs and after a bit of research I found that this one is a male, Fiery Skimmer Orthetrum villosovittatum.
