Libellula depressa female / Vrouwtje Platbuik / Broad-bodied Chaser Female / Plattbauch Weibchen / Libellule déprimée femelle.

Adults fly from mid May to early August.

Mature (blue abdomen) males may sometimes be confused with males of the Black-tailed Skimmer Orthetrum cancellatum, however the latter has a much narrower abdomen and there is no dark patch at the wing-base. Immature males and females (yellowish-brown abdomen) are similar to the Four-spotted Chaser Libellula quadrimaculata but the latter has a much narrower abdomen and a dark patch in the middle of the leading edge of each wing.

KEY IDENTIFICATION FEATURES:

-Broad, flattened abdomen which is pale blue in males and yellowish-brown in females and immature males.
-Yellow spots along sides of abdomen.
-Broad antehumeral stripes.
-Brown patch at base of wings.
-No brown spot on the middle of the leading edge of the wings.

Hi Harm!
Great 'x-wing' pose and composition. Looks rather arty with green blurred BG. Good job!
