The Four Spotted Chaser

Libellula quadrimaculata

Four Spotted Chaser

This year in England seems to have been very good for the Four Spotted Chaser. On a trip to Thursley Common back in Surrey in mid July they seemed to be everywhere and I cannot remember seeing quite so many before at a single site. Back nearer to home at Highstead, just south of Reculver, there were a few showy individuals which allowed me to grab a few pleasing images and take the time to study this species. As with a lot of Chasers, they would fly out and often return to the same perch. This thankfully made the task a little easier to take some photos.

  1. Hello Marc! It's a real pleasure to see it again so at the end of season! But 4 images only: I find the very short series! ;-) Always a big precision for these pictures! Greetings, M.

  2. Bonsoir,

    L'élégance ultime... Je reste sans voix et admirative...
    Gros bisous

  3. Magique, que de brillance par ici ! Bravo.
    Mais que trafique-t-elle sur la 3 ?

  4. Impressive shots, Marc!
    And you show us both sexes!
    Some individuals are extremely beautiful; surly they are not scarce in your area...
    Pic N°2 stands out!
    I see you were not long to pic Nathalie's idea to frame your photos with a white border! LOL!

    1. Yes with the dark background to the blog the white border makes the photos stand out well. Just keep a dark background please.

  5. Beautiful captures, Marc! Your photos have such wonderful detail, as always!

  6. Ah, ces 4 taches, qui enchantent nos débuts de saison, et tu leur rends un bel hommage, Marc !
