Four-Spotted Chaser(Libellula Quadrimaculata)

Usually one of the first to emerge each year,and is the only UK Chaser where the male doesn’t carry the blue colour form

I usually look forward to this species with great anticipation,they tend to herald the Dragonfly season in and start eating alot of biting insects,in a good year you can see a steady procession of newly emerged leaving the river and flying across the meadow looking for a suitable clump of grass to dry out on….so keep your eyes open and you wont be disappointed
