UFO

I've never seen one of these before - an unidentified flying object!

It's a female Broad Bodied Chaser Dragonfly.

It flew into my garden today, and it was huge!

I'm hoping it comes back so I can take a closer look.

What an interesting looking creature! I'm glad someone identified it.

Hello Louise,
Brilliant photo, It's good to learn what type of dragonfly it is as I wouldn't have known. I haven't seen a dragonfly yet this year.

Great picture Louise and well done for tracking down its identity.

I came across a Praying Mantis last year. Incredible up close.

To me, this looks like it's got a stinger. Maybe it's of the wasp or hornet family.
