I took these shots today at Breney Common in dull, overcast and wet conditions. Apart from a single Large Red Damselfly and a few Blues, this was the only other dragonfly. Despite the conditions, they were still quite skittish but this one remained in position for a few minutes. The lens was about eight inches from its eyes. The SB-600 flash was used, offset, with a diffuser.
In addition, the Large Red Damselfly and Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary were also seen today.
