Blue dragonfly on flower

While looking for birds to photograph at Chiswick House and Gardens, I spotted some blue dragonflies drinking the nectar from a flowering bush. They moved around very quickly but I was lucky enough to catch one staying still, allowing me to take this closeup photo. Bees often get the spotlight for their importance for pollinating flowers, but insects like these are very important to the process as well!
