Common Darter

I can't remember a time when I have seen so many dragonflies. These past few days there have been dozens about. Hawkers down the end of the lane and Darters around my garden. There may well have been a lot but finding one still long enough to photograph was a different matter. This Common Darter was the only co-operative one I found.



These were crops from the original photos taken in RAW with the Canon M5.

As it was resting on a cut log at ground level I was on hands and knees trying to stealthily move round to get a head on view but it wasn't having any of that and flew away.


  1. It's good to see your dragonflies doing well. It's been rubbish here.

  2. Lots of migrant hawkers around our cricket pitch I noticed the other day!


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
