Last week I took advantage of one of the rare warm summer days and went on a dragonfly photo expedition to Brude Sø.

The goal was to photograph the species Gomphus vulgatissimus and Libellula fulva, which are both rather rare in Denmark. The trip was a great success, and new photos of those two species have been added to the gallery, together with photos of two other species, Calopteryx virgo and Calopteryx splendens.

As the weather is finally getting warmer here in Denmark, the dragonflies are starting to show. Spring and summer have come very late this year.

Unfortunately I started this season by dropping and damaging my macro lens, a very stupid thing to do, and a lot of time was wasted getting it repaired.
Luckily it is now working again, and I have been out testing it the past couple of weeks, photographing dragonflies at several different locations: Rands Fjord, Bredal Kær, Jenskær, Brude Sø and Uldum Kær.

New photos of the following species have been added: Cordulia aenea, Libellula depressa, Erythromma najas, Ischnura elegans, Libellula quadrimaculata, Brachytron pratense and Leucorrhinia rubicunda.
