Common Darter on Blackberry

Common Darter on Blackberry < PreviousNext >
No, it's not a yuppy chatting away, this blackberry is a fruit. This is a female Common Darter (Sympetrum striolatum) found in Leigh Common Nature Reserve in Dorset, UK. The colour of her abdomen is fading implying she's a relatively old individual. She was watching for prey as I took the photos.

Thanks to all for the recent comments - I didn't think anyone would be still watching my photoblog. I am off to Devon for the weekend so I'm hoping to do some nice photography down there as long as the weather holds up.

Wow! When I first saw this I gasped. You've outdone yourself.

I like this. I think the juxtaposition of insect versus fruit is what makes this shoe.
