My first dragonfly photos of the year. I saw this beautiful young female four-spotted chaser fly into a bush and it rested for long enough for me to take a few photos.
50m away I found a young male on the ground.
It was happily sunbathing and allowed me to get this close with a macro lens.
Four-spotted chasers (Libellula quadrimaculata) spend a lot of time fighting when they are mature and end up looking a bit battered so it was good to see these two youngsters in perfect condition.
