This is an old timer, taken several years ago.

Hi Laurence,
Would you have a side view of this dragon? One of the main differences between the Grenadier (uncommon) & the Scarlet Grenadier (common) is the colour pattern of the thorax - mottled yellow on the former and yellow stripes on the latter.

Cheers,
Lena

Lena, it was shot some years' ago and I did not bother to shoot lateral as I had only a nascent interest in odonata then. I think the broadening of the abdomen towards the tip puts it as a Grenadier. Any way it is always nicer to think that I have got the uncommon one!
