Chasers in the Sunshine

Libellula depressa

Broad bodied Chaser

Whilst down at Westbere Lakes this year to photograph the Scarce Chasers, I come across a couple of Broad bodied Chasers which as Chasers often do, have a preferred perch which they return to again and again. It was a nice sunny day so I positioned myself into a comfortable position and watched as they actively fed and chased everything away that come too near. If I remember correctly, there were Broad bodied, Scarce Chasers and Damselflies everywhere in the sunshine. I hope it comes around quickly as the dark evenings are with us now and the last Migrant Hawkers are all but gone.

  1. WOW!
    "Long time no see" those dragons!
    Your pics are incredibly beutiful, Marc!
    The lady is gorgeous and the young male maturing... can't be "dressed" any better!!
    Thanks for sharing!
    As you can see in some of our publications, in the south of France we are left with 3 darters, S; sanguineum, S; meridionale and S; striolatum!

  2. Great photos, Marc! An interesting looking species, indeed!

  3. Hello Harc! Always a remarkable work, with an absolute precision! I agree with Noushka, the suit of the young males where little of yellow still remains, is magnificent! Best Regards, M.

  4. Une petite remontée dans le temps très réussie, et les clichés sont toujours parfaits !
