This little one was super cooperative as it sat on a branch moving in the breeze. The great thing is that if you do initially spook dragonflies in Japan, they'll often return back to the same place. After realising I meant it no harm, it watched me inquisitively for the next few minutes while I got all the shots I could.

 

*To date I've only ever seen one wild snake and that was in Singapore, today while trying to photograph critters in the forest I stumbled on no less than 3 of 'em. =P
