Common Darter Dragonfly


On this particular day I was taking pictures of Southern Migrant Hawker Dragonflies in flight, patrolling a ditch beside a river in Essex. Once the Hawkers stopped flying, later in the day, I spotted this Common Darter perched in a nice clear area for some photos. I swapped to my macro lens and thankfully it was perfectly cooperative for some pictures. So much so that I had time to compose the shot so that a solitary Buttercup on the ground added some nice colour to the background.
