Common Darter
Sympetrum striolatum

The most common dragonfly in the county, the male can be readily identified by its pale red body, with a straight abdomen and two small black marks near the end of the abdomen. Close inspection reveals black and yellow striped legs.

Females possess a brownish body, the black and yellow striped legs being an important feature in separating them from female Ruddy Darters.

It is found in a wide range of habitats across the county, only being absent from the higher Wolds. It is on the wing from the end of June and is the last Odonatid to be recorded flying in the year, individuals not uncommonly persisting to the second week of November.

Nationally it is widespread across England and Wales, although scarce into northern England and largely absent from southern and central Scotland. The Highland Darter, which may or may not be a separate species, occurs on the west coast of Scotland.

Hello Bora,
Very nice detail seen. Interesting close-crop revealing not only great wing detail, but the added interest/color of the parasitic red mites as well :)
Nicely done & TFS!

Hello Bora.
A very nice, sharp and colorful picture you made here. I like the DOF and the POV very much. Very well done and thanks.

Hi Bora,
yes, I can understand that it was an amazing moment, I also feel that when a dragonfly let me come closer. They are a little curious and look very well what you are doing. Special the flash is nice for them - I can't understand.
Thanks for this beautiful shot, I like it very much, bye

wow, what a pretty dragonfly, bora! :-)
excellent tight crop and great pov, perfectly sharp and
very detailed - what are the little red "balls" on the wings - eggs?
well seen & captured, thorsten.

Very interesting post, I have never seen so many parasitic mites on one insect host. Usually it is 1, or 2-3. Seems they are having a great party ... poor host!

Gabi
