Not just another Dragonfly, folks as this one is a new one for me. When I first spotted it on my favourite local pond I thought it was a Black Tailed Skimmer though they don't usually venture onto this particular side of the small body of water. Ten minutes or so of careful stalking was enough to convince me that it wasn't. Where they came from (there were at least two) I don't know and it never ceases to amaze me how many species of Dragonfly (7) and Damselfly (5) this small body of water can support. Wonderful.
