A very attractively coloured specimen, Shaun, and the detail with which you have captured it so good.

Superb macro work Shaun - really like this. I think you will find it's a Common Darter (male) though.

I think I heard Gary D and the Big O utter the words "Ruddy Darter!" a fair few times at Woorgreens Lake yesterday morning when they were tramping around in the marshy ground trying to photograph dragon and dameselflies!WinkGrin This is another top shot Shaun, the detail and colours have been superbly recorded
