COMMON DARTER (2)

Click photo to enlarge.
Well... the sun has come out, (in fits and bursts) and our fast-becoming resident immature female Common Darter Dragonfly was using her favourite bamboo pole in the vegetable plot, to hunt from.

This is classic Dragonfly behaviour. My Uncle, a leading Dragonfly expert in the UK, will show people around his Dragonfly reserve at Wicken Fen, extend a finger into the air (in a non-rude gesture), and get one of the Dragons to land on it.

Pop a tall (well, 3 or 4 feet anyway, and taller than the surrounding vegetation) up in your garden and keep a check on it. I dare say you'll get visited regularly by one of these Dragonflies before too long...
