Broad-bodied Chaser emergence

By May 12, 2020 Blog

Cecilia Young has sent in some lovely emergence shots of Broad-bodied Chaser taken at her garden pond near Oswestry – presumably just before this cold snap. Over 30 exuviae were found which makes me very jealous as I still await any dragonfly emergence from my pond! The last photo in the sequence shows clearly the antehumeral (shoulder) stripes and broad flattened body shape of this species.
