Scarce Chaser - Brian WalkerScarce Chaser, Libellula fulva, used to live up to its name, occurring only in small numbers on a few rivers.  In recent years it has seen an expansion in range and it is worth looking out for it by slow flowing rivers with flourishing bankside vegetation in the south of England.  Males are somewhat similar to other powder blue dragonflies but females, as illustrated, are very distinctive.
