Whiteface Dragonfly

I was walking around a picnic area near a railway track, when I came across this Whiteface Dragonfly. It seems to be end of its life as it was not doing much flying, also seems to be a problem with one of its wings. I took the attached picture as the dragonfly was resting on the spike, the colours on the metal highlighted the beautiful colours of the fly. Hope they had lot of mosquitoes to eat this summer, as the mosquitoes were very busy taking my blood this year.

Until next moment,
