Broad-bodied Chasers at Whitestones Ponds

I have been visiting the Whitestones Ponds at Twywell Hills & Dales quite regularly to try and capture Broad-bodied Chasers. On Wednesday 19 June, the weather was hot and humid and there was good activity around the third muddy pond. Here I saw a territorial male mate with two females, who promptly began ovipositing. They move so fast that getting in flight shots is difficult so I concentrated on the female and managed several good ones including these.
