Damsels And Dragons.

An assortment of Dragonflies Damsels and Chasers from local ponds and waters. Always totally fascinated by these awesome Hunters !!
Dragonflies come under four catagories, Hawkers, Skimmers, Chasers and Darters all describing the way they hunt.
The angle of the two sets of wings on a Dragonfly can be controlled independently, allowing for some astonishing aerial manoeuvres, spectacular hovering and flight in any direction.
