Broad-bodied chaser ovipositing, Baggeridge

Female broad-bodied chaser dragonfly placing her eggs (ovipositing) in the water of a small pool in Baggeridge Country Park. She had mated with a male while I was getting my camera out. Now she was hovering over the water, dipping the rear of her abdomen under the surface again and again.
