Amazing dragonfly

Description:

Huge striped dragonflies, patrolling around a shallow pond in a heather covered area of young and recently planted forestry land. This photograph was extremely difficult to take because they were moving around so quickly and sporadically, but every now and again one would hover long enough for a chance at a photo. There were frequent fights and squabbles between various individuals, and the sound their wings made when they clashed was quite loud.
