Nice one, John. Whitewater Darners are very similar to Unicorns but there are subtle differences in the shapes of the various markings. A side-on shot of the thorax and abdomen would have shown the more diagnostic difference in pattern.

I tried for a side-on shot but the insect wouldn't co-operate.
