Likely BROAD-BODY CHASERS (Libellula depressa)
The Broad-bodied Chaser, is one of the most common dragonflies in Europe and central Asia. It is very distinctive with a very broad flattened abdomen, four wing patches and, in the male, the abdomen becomes pruinose blue.
- L. depressa is seen near still-water lakes and ponds, feeding on many types of small insects.
- They occur in both bare and sunny locations, where it is often the first dragonfly to colonise new habitats such as newly created ponds, and well vegetated ponds.
- L. depressa are often seen away from water as the adults are very mobile and undergo a period of maturation away from water after emergence.
