It's a Boy!

With up to four female Broad-bodied Chasers in the garden over the last several days I observed another Broad-bodied Chaser flying around the garden today.Like the others it landed in what seems a favoured flower border that is in full sun.Close inspection of the chaser confirmed that this one was an immature male.Both female and immature males are very similar in colour. However the abdomen is broader in the female and of course the anal appendages differ.
