Cuerden Valley Parks Dragonfly Pond is certainly worth a visit if you are in the area. Apart from the above species we saw 2 other Dragonflies but were unable to photograph them for identification.

Really great photos! It also seems to be a good spot for them. Were you using the Lumix or the Pentax (or perhaps both?). Mike.

I pass the pond when I walk the dogs up there and have taken brief looks before but this was the first time I took the camera. It's quite a busy little place for dragonfly / damselfly. I took the photo's with the Pentax and teleconvertor and Reece used the Lumix and his photos are on his own blog Spuds Nature.
