FOUR-SPOT SPOT­TED

Richard Lay, from Cais­ter-on-Sea

EDP Norfolk - - Readers’ Photos -

I had a walk round Up­ton Fen af­ter a cool wet night to look for drag­on­flies; if it is cool and wet they are lethar­gic and ap­proach­able; also they are in­cred­i­bly pho­to­genic. This four-spot chaser was easy to find and didn’t move in the 15 min­utes my­self and a friend spent tak­ing pic­tures. Af­ter they dry out and warm up it is busi­ness as usual and its al­most im­pos­si­ble to get a pic­ture as they hunt.
