Resting in a dahlia bloom

Yesterday morning I spent a good two hours down in the garden grooming the dahlias. Most of my time was spent dis-budding, pinching off the two outside buds to encourage one strong main bloom. As I was moving plant to plant down the rows I came upon this beautiful guy. Normally dragonflies are very shy and fly away before I can even get my camera out. But this one was taking a serious nap! I actually thought he had died on the bloom and tried to pick him up. As soon as I touched him he woke up and flew off.
