[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The broad bodied chaser (Libellula depressa) is a found over larger ponds. The male is blue, and the female (and immature males) a wonderful yellow/gold. They are fast on the wing and provide wonderful aerial displays.

When not flying, they often come to rest on stalks along the pondside.
