Broad Bodied Chaser Male

By Glostopcat  
A male broad bodied chaser dragonfly beside one of the six small ponds in the heathland area of Woorgreens nature reserve in the Forest of Dean, taken yesterday on a day out with fellow epzer gary_d. We saw numerous dragonflies, damselflies and butterflies on our visit including some nationally rare ones.

Top notch photography Ed, a wonderful symmetrical pose with stunning detail, and colour, whilst at the same time it has been very well exposed, processed and presented.

My screen has suddenly brightened up before my eyes - all the better to see your lovely detailed Chaser.
It must be quite exciting seeing new species. I'd love to see you and the boys out there looking!
