Is this the nymph of this beauty?

    I agree with your ID. Broad-bodied Chaser is very common in garden ponds. The males are blue and can easily be seen perching and patrolling over the pond. Yours is a female. The nymphs are hairy and live buried in the bottom mud with only the eyes/antennae visible, so they're always very dirty looking.

    Wow!  I had no idea a dragonfly nymph looked like your first pic.  (I need to scrutinise Attenborough programmes I think to catch up on these things).  Brilliant to see these Gillian 53.
