|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I found this male Emperor dragonfly (Anax imperator) a couple of weeks ago. It was surprisingly approachable and allowed me to take a few close up shots.|
The Emperor is common and widespread in southern Britain, where it prefers well vegetated ponds and lakes. The males are very territorial, engaging in spectacular aerial dogfights with intruders. Females lay eggs into submerged vegetation. The larval stage usually takes two years to develop before emerging as the winged adult.
