Hold that pose, my friend...
This is an old photo I had forgotten about. I found it while looking through my folders for things to delete. Dragonfly visits to my garden are rare nowadays. (Or, have I not been looking close enough?) Although there are no ponds near my house, they were quite regular visitors at one time.
I went to a garden park today. There is a man-made lake there, and a jogging / walking track around it. The perimeter is 3 km. I walked around the track once... and didn't meet any dragonfly. But there were tiny bees at the flowers. I spent an hour taking photos of them at the end of my walk... happy to take the camera bag and tripod off my shoulders too. :-)))
