I have never seen the whole performance either. Usually arriving at the latter stages or with a nymph stationary and nothing happening. So really amazing skills and patience. (I must learn those )

One of my favourite shots is of the shiny stage, hanging out to dry.

As always, you have my admiration on your macro skills.

Thanks Peter I appreaciate the comments and worth seeing bigger for sure

I suspect it is a hairy dargonfly myself.
