Took a leisurely walk around Thornden Wood finding a couple of ponds with dragonflies on the wing. Also I saw several garden warblers, two that were especially close plus chiffchaffs and blackcaps. Only had the little bridge camera which gives a big depth of field but not a particularly detailed shot.
Azure Damselfly - Coenagrion puella. The only 'blue' seen
Large Red Damselfly- Pyrrhosoma nymphula
Female Broad-bodied chaser - Libellula depressa. Egg laying, chased by several fast flying males
Large red damselfly- never realized the female has blue legs!
Also my 3 books describes the thorax as black with red stripes not GREEN as seen here! Perhaps it changes colour later???
