Five four-spotted chasers (Libellula quadrimaculata) warming up in the early morning sun. I took these yesterday morning down at Ham Wall reserve. An early start (arrived at 04:30 hours) with a very heavy dew. These were still not warmed up at 06:50. A great morning and definitely worth all the mosquito bites. More images to follow over the next few days!
