Dragonflies on the Regent’s Canal at Saint Pancras in London, England.

There were large numbers of these insects hovering around the canal today. These two were at the closed-off lock below Saint Pancras basin, which is completely overgrown with dense waterweed and reeds, below the railway lines into Saint Pancras International Station. The area around Saint Pancras is currently undergoing extensive redevelopment but still nature has managed to find its own oasis in the waterway.
