Black-tailed Skimmer.

Black-tailed Skimmer (Orthetrum cancellatum) a fast, low flying and highly active species seen perching on open bare ground or muddy banks, stones, dead trees and roads. Both the female (yellow) and the male were located in an open grassy glade resting from their frantic flying escapades.

I may be off line for a while but I will catch up with any readers in the not too distant future.....FAB.
