4 Spot Chaser Dragonflies, Libellula quadrimaculata. Somerset Levels and Cornwall. May/June 2023.


It's been another great year for these dragonflies with numbers seemingly high at many different sites.

We went to Ham Wall on the Somerset Levels on 29th May and there were thousands of them having just emerged and in immaculate condition. 

Latterly I've watched them more locally around the Amble marshes on the outskirts of Wadebridge where I live.

Here are a few of my images, some were taken with a Tamron 90mm macro lens on my Nikon D500 & others on my 500mm telephoto also on the same camera ....
