Artist's Description

Taken with a Canon 400D, Tamron 90mm prime lens, F11 shutter speed 1/30 second ISO400, edited in Photoshop

Length: 38-43mm

A summer and autumn species, this dragonfly can be found well into November and may be one of the last on the wing in the UK. The thorax in both sexes is brown above with poorly defined antehumeral stripes and yellow panels on the sides. The eyes are brown above and yellow below. The legs are black with a diagnostic yellow stripe along their length.
The males become a bright orange-red with maturity.

Females have a pale, yellowish-brown abdomen often developing red markings along the segment boundaries and medial line as they age.
