Four-spotted, four views.

Over forty Four-spotted Chasers were on the wing at Banks Pond at the weekend when THE Howdon Blogger and i visited the site. Two Emperor Dragonflies patrolled the larger pond and hundreds of Damselflies, many in tandem and ovipositing, were present. While the Four-spots were available for photo opportunities the Emperors, as they do, were constantly on the move often over the areas of open water. Lots of aggresive behaviour shown by the male Chasers, often engaging in very fast interactions with others before usually returning to their favourite perches.
