    Common Darter Dragon Fly

    I think this is a Common Darter? Feel free to put me right. Captured at the local nature reserve this afternoon. A bit of sun seemed to bring them out. Must be near to seeing the last of them for this year.

    C&C very welcome.

    Thanks Christina, thanks Chauncey. Just occasionally one of these stays still long enough to get off a few shots.

    Missed these. Thank you Nandakumar, thank you Claudio. Claudio, it was just the lighting conditions. The overall image was lighter OOC but I have darkened the BG to help the Dragonfly stand out more.
