found this dragonfly sort of thing today at Pleasley colliery reserve but i am not up on species, i only recognize 4 spot and broad bodied chasers , any thoughts on what it it please.

i seem to be struggling with macro to get sharp pictures and balancing the need to use a tripod against the practicality of getting close with one. this was hand held but the only one of 4 that was sharp anywhere i wanted.

thanks for looking
Phil

Phil - it looks like a Norfolk Hawker to me because of the green eyes - it is commonly known as the Green Eyed Hawker. However, it is very rare in the United Kingdom as it is confined to an area on the eastern fringes of East Anglia. Its distribution is very limited and is rarely seen elsewhere. Could it fit that description?

If I could get one photo this good in every four I would be very pleased, this is great macro work, I never use a tripod as I find wildlife does not hang around long enough and I lose more images.
