Two dragonflies at Holme Dunes

One of the pools at Holme was very busy with dragonflies on Saturday.  Apart from the Emperor and the Black-tailed Skimmer shown here there were also Common Darters flying singly and in pairs which dipped into the water occasionally egg-laying. One of the Common Darters got caught by a male Emperor which flew off to devour it.
