Broad-Bodied Chaser(Libellula Depressa)

One of the earlier Dragonflies to emerge,and normally one of the commonest….It has a characteristic broad flat body,

This is a spectacular Dragonfly,with the male being blue and the female gold.If you catch the female at the right angle she’ll seem to shimmer in the sun,Often this Dragonfly can be approachable if care is taken,but then some will take flight at the slightest movement
