Emperor Dragonfly (Anax imperator)

The next two photos are firstly, a male Broad Bodied Chaser ( Libellula depressa) followed by the female. These are both pretty good photos by Dave Sampson. Sadly they were not taken in Dagnam Park. So here's the challenge for all the Dagnam Park snappers, beat this in 2012. This Dragonfly will be found on most ponds in the park and especially about the round pond during the summer. Enter your photos via Don Tait's facebook page or simply email them to The Friends of Dagnam Park. Goodluck.
