Description:

Another one of those, "whoa, hang on" moments when post-processing pictures. I expect female Emperor Dragonflies have a broadly green-coloured abdomen but here's what looks more like a male. Sanity returned when I spotted a note in Dijkstra/Lewington that older females can be blue. Such relief!
