|Female Broad-bodied Chaser (Libellula depressa Nl:Platbuik)in the Millingerwaard, a nature-developing area near the city Nijmegen. A common species in much of Europe, extending to central Asia. A strong flier that is often the first species to claim newly-created or cleared habitats. Their habitat is a wide range of mostly stagnant waters, small, shallow, sunny and bare, such as cattle-drinking pools or quarry lakes.|
