A Male Emperor Dragon Fly (Anax imperator), also known as Blue Emperor. Taken yesterday perching on seeding dock around our pond.
My thanks to those of you who supported my last upload - very much appreciated
NB: My thanks to Mike (Mike_Young) who has pm'd me to say I have given the wrong ID to this image. It is an Emperor Dragon Fly (Anax imperator) or Blue Emperor and not a Southern Migrant Hawker which is smaller. Have uploaded V2 with the correct caption underneath. Cheers Mike for the correct ID - really appreciated
