Taken at the weekend during a visit to a local nature reserve. The pond is quite new and doesn't yet have everything you might expect but its getting there. I found an old stick, pushed it in the bank of the pond and waited. There were 3-4 males and one female darter but the female didn't stay still for a second. It took just on 2 hours for the male's to find the stick but it was (in my opinion) well worth the wait. Hope everyone is okay. A fellow epz member just let me know this is a broad bodied chaser so apologies for the misleading title.
Regards
Gerry

Truly wonderful detail. Those wings look made from lace and the body colours are gorgeous. You really did spend those 2 hours well waiting for this!

Wow you have certainly blown me away with this one Gerry. I find it very hard to find the patience for wildlife photography. I guess I am not fast enough. This has excellent clarity and detail to it. Fantastic Gerry. However from you that is no surprise LOL.
