A Dragon Shoot

A few days ago I went on a Dragonfly shoot in local woodland. 
There is one large pond that is generally inhabited by various Dragon/Damselflies at this time.

The first set of images feature the Four-spotted Chaser.








One Four-spot below in flight with a female Broad-bodied behind out of focus.


Male Broad-bodied Chaser




Inflight shots below of the Broad-bodied Chaser.
Some images of a female in the act of ovipositing.

1/8000 at f4. - 300mm. - ISO1600

Two females Broad-bodied close to each other.




Male Broad-bodied Chaser in poor light.



Female (Common ?) Migrant,  I am not quite sure about the ID and its the only two long distant images I took of it, but its a female ovipositing.

Azure Damselfly


NB. Bet I got one wrong Trevor. :)

  5. A brilliant collection Roy. Used to get the occasional Broad Bodied Chaser in the garden but haven't seen one for several years.

  6. Stunning photos, to fast for me to get a photo with my camera. Not been to the pond at the park lately, we usually get some on here. Next sunny day I will have a look.

  7. Lots of beautiful dragonflies as a feather spot and flat belly man and woman.
    The juffers have also brought you a beautiful picture.
    I also can not see what drapery in the water her eggs are depositing but the picture is very beautiful!
