  1. I missed this entry!
    Beautiful beautiful, this one is very very scarce down here.
    I've only saw it once, and only adult males, not a single female, probably because they were a bit far from the water line. But the most fascinating is looking to your stunning capture of an immature (teneral) male! Oh wow, this is surely on my wishlist*

    1. Thanks again Felix, to be honest with you, these are quite common in the Weerribben in the Netherlands, you can Google on that. Posted 2 months ago

The scarce chaser is a species of dragonfly. The adult male has a bright blue abdomen with patches of black, while the adult female and juvenile male each have a bright orange abdomen. It is about 45 mm in length with an average wingspan of 74 mm. It is distributed throughout Europe. This dragonfly is considered a species of special concern in Great Britain due to loss of its specific ideal habitat.
