Late dragonfly

This was taken on November 18, 2021. The weather was extremely mild for the time of year, and the dragonfly was still very active. There were quite a few wild flowers still going strong, and some deciduous trees still had most of their leaves. This is just not normal in the UK.

This is a very good point, Amelia. Some of the climate changes are perhaps subtle and may even seem pleasant, like having dragonflies still around in mid November. But they reveal profound alterations to the seasonal cycles that have a much larger impact. You captured the dragonfly beautifully against the rough texture of the dead wood.

A beautiful capture of this dragonfly and an interesting comment, Amelia. Seasonal changes associated with climate change can certainly be very real.

This looks like a Common Darter to me (although I'm no expert). According to my field guide they remain flying until quite late in the year........sometimes even into December, so that would fit.

Well spotted and beautifully captured Amelia!

They are always too active for me to get a picture of Amelia. This one is enjoying the sunshine, while it lasts! An excellent shot and beautifully captured.
