Female Common Green Darner on my finger

Taken on a trip with the hardcore dragonfly enthusiasts of Someone netted this lady and gave her to me to hold. She was my first. I'm not comfortable with the trauma inflicted on these creatures but I was fascinated too. I still haven't made up my mind about this practice but bottom line I don't like it. I can come up with some justifications but they're weak. Didn't stop me from holding a dragon when given the chance though.
