|Four-spotted Chaser Libellula quadrimaculata|
|Monks Eleigh, Suffolk,
May 2008 The Four-spotted Chaser is widespread throughout the British Isles though largely absent from north-east England. It is also found in Europe and North America. It is found in a wide variety of habitats including heathland, fens, gravel pits and gardens.
|These photos show an immature
which I found on a tree above my garden pond and may well have
just emerged from there. Note the spot in the middle of the wing
which gives the species both its English and its scientific
names. The dragonfly emerges in late May and June and flies
through to mid August.
