Broad-bodied chaser

Our good friends invited us for afternoon coffee yesterday. It was a lovely, warm day. Suddenly I saw this dragonfly. I said, oh, look, look ! ? My friend said it’s a dragonfly. She had searched for information about it on the internet and found out it is a broad-bodied chaser. I have never seen this kind of dragonfly and my friend said neither has she. According to Wikipedia it is one of the most common dragonflies in Europe and Asia. I wish I had had my tripod with me. Without it, the photos are what they are. Thank you dear friends for having us and for the delicious rhubarb pie.

    Wow, truly magnificent dragonfly and pictures! 😍 The second and third picture deserve a spot in National Geographic magazine, I honestly think you should send those to them! 💕

    Anyway, I think when you actually have tripod with you, the dragonfly (or whatever interesting creatures) won’t come any close to you, LOL… they seem to know what you’re thinking! 😄

      Thank you so much my dear friend saxsilverain. The quality of the photos are not good enough for such a prestige magazine 🙂 You are right about the tripod. It most likely would scare the dragonflies 😀
