Pair of common darters mating- wonder if this is the same male I had a chat with the other day putting his words into action :) see http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=202704

I'm sure he's giving me a thumbs up in the last shot :)

Great series as usual. I picture your garden as just a huge cloud of dragonflies! You seem to be able to capture so many great shots of them.

As usual, simply wonderful Brian. #7 and #8 for me, but they're all excellent.

Thanks Paul :)
Not quite a cloud but I can normally find between 3 to 6 of these Darters on a sunny day some are often in the front garden (away from the pond). Haven't seen many Hawker dragonflies this year though.

Thanks for the comments all :)
Interestingly two of the shots were taken with the MPE-65 (20D) and the rest with the 105mm EX with 35mm of ext tubes (300D).
