Black Tailed Skimmer

In my experience, dragonflies are difficult to photograph because they are constantly on the move, often patrolling their territory. I was probably lucky to catch these male black tailed skimmers basking in the sun, by the lake at the National Trust’s Ickworth House in Suffolk.

Identification was fairly easy using this excellent guide to dragonfly identification provided by the British Dragonfly Society.
