Broad-bodied Chaser - Hothfield Common: 24 May 2020

After snapping a couple of Tiger Beetles, we moved to the raised bog for some hot Odonata action...

No Keeled Skimmers yet, but a lovely chunky female Broad-bodied Chaser put on a good display has she oviposited her eggs in the shallow waters. Not once did she land and take a rest: she had a job to do and she was going to complete it.
Broad-bodied Chaser (female) - the venation patterns on the black patches are great (in my humble opinion!)
Would she rest? Would she b******!
