Unexpected birthday guest

We had some of the family round today for some socially distanced birthday celebrations when this uninvited guest flew in. The biggest example I've ever seen - a little over 7 inches I'd guess, and it hung around for quite a while - long enough for me to put the A* 200mm macro on the K1 mkII.....

Superb captures, you were lucky it hung around so long.

Thanks for the comments

It really was just pot luck - it arrived just as my Daughter and her family did, my Son-in-Law had to move it on from the wooden post of the slide because it had no fear and didn't flinch as the grandkids clambered up the steps nearly squashing it. Gentle persuasion made it move all of 3 feet to a log pile, allowing me more time to snap away.

I refrained from eating it Alan - I was saving myself for the Lemon cake

A very welcome uninvited guest, I'd say. Fine photos. We only have little damsel flies over our garden pond these days...
