Another day, another dragonfly

Emperor dragonfly

Today at the swimming pool, a female Emperor laid her eggs while the male patrolled nearby. A female Broad-bodied Chaser darted about, a Hairy Dragonfly zapped around and damselflies perched in the reeds and on the lilypads.

  1. Just caught up with your recent posts Katie and I see we have both been entranced by the activity of dragons and damsels. I'm still waiting to capture an Emporer. FAB.

  2. Beautiful photos of all your damsels and dragons.

  3. I've been trying to take pictures of dragonflies today, on the Somerset Levels before all the hobbies get them!

  4. You're very kind :o)
