Dragonflies - stardogs

Twelve Spotted Skimmer - male - munching down a fly. I was out taking pictures in my field and this fellow landed on a weave pole right in front of me. He was busy eating so I was able to get about 5 feet from him - as close at the 300mm lens will focus. I don't know of any ponds or water nearby - so I don't know where he comes from, but I sure like that he is eating flies!!
