  4. Scarce chasers aren't very scarce this year judging by the number of pictures of them I've seen. But I haven't seen a single dragon or damsel yet, and I spend a fair bit of time out next to water while running and walking

  6. Roy, I'm glad to see that you've managed to get some dragonfly photos, despite searching all the usual places I've not seen a single one so far this year...they must all be up in your neck of the woods?
    You've captured a good selection here..I'll keep looking!!...[;o)

  7. I absolutely love dragons and damsels, they are just behind butterflies vying for my fave insects. Smashing photos and I've never seen the Four Spotted or the Scarce Chasers so great to see them in your post!

  8. Excellent series Roy. It has been far too windy here to even find many Odonata.
