Eventually

At last I managed a few half decent shot of some of the Red veined Darters that have been cropping up around the Norfolk coast. If they weren’t sporting worn or tattered wings they were far too far away or hidden in vegetation. A decent photograph seemed impossible.

As I walked adjacent to a small marsh I noticed this male perched on a grass stem overhanging the path. Although he had a small tear in one wing he still looked resplendent in his red chain mail. He stopped just long enough for me to focus and press the shutter. Click to enlarge.
