A gem of a dragonfly

A stunningly handsome dragonfly when studied closely, this is a male black darter. It’s four wings remain in the open position when at rest and each wing has a small black wing-spot near the tip. It is Britain’s smallest dragonfly. The black darter is restricted to acid water and therefore quite common around moorland bog pools. Now getting towards the end of its flight season but there were plenty basking in the sun today up on the moor here in Rosedale. Updale Natural History Recorder
