One of the most beautiful living things to watch are dragonflies. Their continually changing iridescent colours are one of the summer highlights. A couple of evenings ago one landed on our blind and I was able to get some really good photographs. We are situated in an area of mixed woodland just south of Bordeaux near to a river. Any suggestions for identification? I had a quick look online but could not find a matching photograph. I would like to know what our visitor was. Later that evening it had flew away leaving no trace of eggs.

Thanks for commenting on my dragonfly blog!
It is very difficult to take pictures of this elusive river dragon except when it is still ‘young’ as it travels long distances from the place where it emerges to where it will find mates and another river. You see them mostly at the end of the day in July when they pass through our gardens to hunt insects.
You have an interesting blog!
