This is a Common Darter male.

The green background is the water of a large pond.

I normally like to use manual focus because AF tends to focus on the background. However, these insects move around so much and so quickly that I had to use centre-spot AF and aim very accurately. The dragons do hover very briefly.

Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Panasonic 100 - 400mm Leica DG Vario-Elmar at 364mm 1/500 at f8 ISO 640.

The first image is uncropped and the second is cropped. I got only the one good frame.

Thanks, Carl.

This is one of the red Darters. The other species present is blood red, images to follow soon.

Thanks, Birdie.

I have found some more, in various folders in which the images have been left unprocessed.
