Female Broad Bodied Chaser
Comments(3) # Female Broad Bodied Chaser london e17

It was over a month ago I showed you the characteristically yellow male of this species and now finally I get to bring you a female. I was starting to get worried that there were no females at this location and indeed by the time this one showed up I was no longer seeing males. Happily an hour after finding this one I came across a male too so hopefully the pond will see another year's generation. The glistening on her wings are dew drops for this one was captured early in the day. It's probably the easiest time to capture them as they can't fly until the sun has warmed them up and if too dew laden they can't fly properly anyway. Canon EOS-1D Mark III
