Thank you Dragoon. She was a great subject to shoot as she was far more determined to hang on to her lunch than to try & evade me!

This would be a mature female. It's strange, since they change from being vivid orange to this almost-dull blue, which looks nothing like the male.

Beautiful spotting however! Eastern Forktails are my favorite to shoot.
