Male Emperor patrolling his Empire
A good variety of dragons and damselflies on the wing at the wetlands at the moment. My favourite the male Emperors are patrolling their ponds. We don't get many Emerald Damsels but always nice to see them. The Red-eyed Damsels are proving elusive. They don't like to leave the water's edge and I am finding it difficult to bring the macro to bear on them and the telephoto doen't really cut it with such small subjects. First time I have seen the blotchy winged Praenubila form of the Four-spotted Chaser. Also in flight a male Black-tailed skimmer.
