Look at me

While looking at the plants which one I should capture today this tiny insect was flying around my feet drawing my attention. To put its size in perspectief, he is holding on to a piece of grass.
Thanks to Florida entomology site they confirmed that this is a Amberwing dragonfly.
Amberwing is a species of dragonfly in the family Libellulidae. It is very small, reaching a total length of no more than 25 mm. The males have orange or amber wings. Both sexes have a red pterostigma. The eastern amberwing dragonfly is one of the only types of dragonfly that actively mimics a wasp.
Incredible shot - fav!

Wonderful focus on this tiny creature. I love the fuzzies on top of its head. At first I thought it was sitting on an iris leaf but your explanation about it being a blade of grass proves just how small this dragonfly is.
