Common Darter Dragonfly

At Burton Mere last weekend, we came across quite a lot of dragonflies with most of them perching on the fences and railings along the boardwalk. They were kind enough to let me get a few shots. These I believe are the Common Darter variety.




A lovely Speckled Wood butterfly joined them for good measure.

  4. Don't know how you do what you do ... never can get these beauties to sit still and pose for me. Probably they know that my portraits wouldn't be that good anyway. Yours on the other hand are little miracles!
