Anyway, On the afternoon of Sunday 25th May, I headed off out to the woods that are to be found on my local patch near Tonbridge in Kent, England. I visit everyday, to see the wildlife and it's here that I find most of my Odonata, today my efforts were focused on these little wonders.......
The Four Spotted Chaser, Libellula quadrimaculata.
Je me permets de rajouter la 3è photo de Warren avec une modif... Je viens de m'apercevoir que les triangles - celui de gauche est surligné de rouge - n'ont pas le même nombre de cellules, 3 à gauche, 5 à droite! Curieux, non?!
Warren, I have just noticed that the number of cell contained in the triangles of the fore wings (the one I overlined on the left) are not the same! 3 on the left 5 on the right! Quite strange, what do you think?
Nouska, Well spotted, you have eagle eyes! I dont know the reason for the difference, I'll check any future images I get of the Four Spotted Chasers and compare them!
Noushka, I have looked at an image I took last year, and the wing segments you pointed out are different again! ( added image to the bottom of the post. )
