Leucorrhinia pectoralis (Yellow-spotted Whiteface/Large White-faced Darter)

We had to make two trips, both of which suffered from poor weather, to the Réserve Naturelle du Pinail [Pinail Trail] in France before we actually found our quarry. Even then, we saw but one individual but at least we managed to get a shot of it.
