Common Darter

This, if I'm not mistaken, is a female of the species Sympetrum striolatum and at the risk of being terribly politically incorrect is a bit of a stunner. Here it is taking up the sun on a fence on Snuff Mill Lane.

Margot took this because the camera and I have issues over macro shots grrrr.


  1. Looks like our Dragonfly. We once found a dead one completely intact, so we put it in a glass jar. That was years ago and we still have it.
