From before the rain
A Red-eyed Damsel on the canal
A Common Darter enjoying the sun
The same individual
A Ruddy Darter - I think this actually is a female but my track record on differentiating dragonfly gender isn't good
At least this is obviously a male!
At least I'm actually seeing some Hawkers now, although I can't get a photo of one for love or money

And this is a shot I've wanted to get … a real close-up of one of the best and most colourful pairs of eyes in the business.
What fabulous clarity of detail on the eyes!
One taken by my Beloved, on Brownsea, Ruddy Darter we think
And No, of course I haven't got the hump that she got a more detailed pic than me

Said he through gritted teeth. Congratulate Mrs PB on a very nice shot. Might you now be allowed to upgrade your camera perhaps. LOL
