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.
