Broad-bodied Chaser
Libellule déprimée

L. depressa is found in central and southern Europe, central Asia and the Middle East. It range extends northwards to southern Scotland, southern Sweden and southern Finland and it occurs on some Mediterranean islands including Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily and Menorca. Its range does not extend beyond southern Europe into Africa.

L. depressa is seen near still-water lakes and ponds, feeding on many types of small insects. They occur in both bare and sunny locations, where it is often the first dragonfly to colonise new habitats such as newly created ponds, and well vegetated ponds. L. depressa are often seen away from water as the adults are very mobile and undergo a period of maturation away from water after emergence. The adults are also migratory. (Wikipedia)

Hello Anne,
Talk about a tac sharp image, this is definitely a winner. Wonderful clarity throughout while showing the dragonfly off in exceptional detail. Colors are vivid yet natural and the blurred BG is a real bonus. Great shot!!
