|Four-spotted chaser (Libellula quadrimaculata) form praenubila|
A widespread and relatively common dragonfly in the UK. The amount of pigmentation on the wings can vary greatly between individuals. The "four spots" can be limited to the pterostigma and the node, or as this individual shows the pigmentation can spread down the wing to form some quite extensive markings on the wings.

Hi Steve, Firstly welcome to TN. You have posted a fine close up of the Chaser with a good pose on the dried grass. Your sharp focusing has given fine detail and natural colours. a nice POV/DOF. i will look out for some more from you.
PS IT would be nice to know your camera and lens use.

welcome to TN. decent image to start with. good composition and details, it would have been better had you got headon to show all the four wings and the perch is distracting the image. TFS.

A really beautiful macro shot here!
I really like the beautiful colors of the dragonfly here and how the stand out so nicely thanks to that superb uniform BG.
The vertical composition is also great and it works with this pose of the subject well.
The details are nice and sharp and the depth of field is well calculated here.
Good work overall!
Bravo and thanks for sharing
