Boardwalk Dragons

Went to the boardwalks NR at lunchtime in search of Red-tipped Clearwing but only a brief view of a probable one. Dragons were in abundance though with Brown Hawker, Hairy Dragonfly, Emperor, Banded Demoiselle, Common Blue, Red-eyed, Blue-tailed and Small Red-eyed Damselflies in addition to the ones shown here.

Note the praenubila form of Four-spotted Chaser with the dark bands near the wingtips. My first of this form.

Broad-bodied Chaser Libellula depressa

Four-spotted Chaser Libellula quadrimaculata f. praenubila
