Broad-bodied Chaser.

Like many other dragonfly species the male Broad-bodied Chaser (Libellula depressa) often uses the same perch to rest in-between its territorial forays so this provides a good position to wait and grab some images.

These shots were all taken hand-held with the 70-300mm lens plus 1.4x converter at a pond in Horton Country Park.

Very occasionally this male used a different perch.
