Red-veined Darter

Red-veined Darters have bred at Maxey GP this year. It's an unusual dragonfly species as they are able to turn out a whole generation in only a matter of a few months. This new generation can be found in the weedy grass around the pits. In the chilly, dewy conditions this female was very dosile.
