Bumble bee ID help please.

Recommended Posts

I am having great difficulty Identifying this one as I can't match it to a particular type due to the orange hackle and buff tail but no "rings"

Thanks in advance, davey

Don't wish to start another thread for this and as it is another insect thought I would continue on this thread.:)

 

 

Any help appreciated in identifying this Dragonfly.

Allan,

 

I think it's a female Broad-bodied Chaser (Libellula depressa), but I stand to be corrected by any experts on here.

That was quick John. Thanks for your input, I will look it up.

By George sir I think you've got it. The female seems to have a slightly longer and narrower body than the male.

 

Thanks again.
