Ruddy Darter (3)
Comments(4) # Ruddy Darter (3) london e17

Yes I know we've already had a recently emerged Ruddy Darter and a mature male but I thought you might like this head on view too. The Darters are just about the only Dragons I can find at the moment which makes me very sad, autumn really does feel like it is upon us and soon there will be no Dragons at all until next spring. The are a couple of Emperors at my favourite local little pond too but they don't tend to rest like the Darters and so are somehat harder to photograph. If I don't manage to snap one over the next week or so I'll have to resort to one from last year to show you when I came across an Emperor basking in the late evening sun, possibly in the spot that it had chosen to spend the night.
