Oo-shiokaratonbo (Orthetrum albistylum speciosum)dragonfly in Tsurugaoka-hachimangu

I found an impressive male "Oo-shiokaratonbo" dragonfly fearlessly and quietly staying on the stem of a sacred lotus flower.

It seemed to me that the lapis lazuli blue of this dragonfly exceeded in beauty even the cloudless brilliant blue of the burning summer sky of that afternoon.
