Male Broad-Bodied Chaser . Explored 22.7.12

Male Broad-Bodied Chaser,libellula depressa,at Styal.

 

Plenty of these around this year but this is the first time I have got a reasonable shot

 

A very bright day with lots of reflections hence the over-exposure on the body .

 

This species breeds in well vegitated ponds and is a Darter . They usually perch on reeds or grass and are often easy to approach
