SX70 HS - Orthetrum cancellatum - Black-tailed skimmer

Black-tailed skimmers are medium-sized dragonflies measuring up to 50mm. They fly extremely swift while skimming the water surface and threatening any other male skimmer penetrating their territory. Here is one of them I captured while it was warming in the sun:

Thank you for watching.
