[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Libellula quadrimaculata, named for the dark spots at each wing node, is common throughout Europe except the northern and southern extremes. Powerful, fast fliers, males will defend a prominent perch even from larger Aeshnids. Can be present in very high numbers in early summer
