The weather here in Denmark is still rather cold and very changeable, so the dragonfly season is a bit delayed compared to last year.
Anyway, I have been out hunting dragonflies several times during the last couple of weeks, most of the times in the area around Rands Fjord, but also with one visit to Uldum Kær.

The first species to emerge was Pyrrhosoma nymphula, but now Coenagrion pulchellum, Cordulia aenea and Brachytron pratense are also starting to appear. At Uldum Kær, Coenagrion pulchellum was numerous with over 100 specimens in a small area.

New photos of all the listed species have been added to the gallery.

I have been warming up to this years dragonfly season by going through the photo galleries here on odonata.dk, adding new photos from last years season and editing and updating existing photos.

Now May has finally arrived and yesterday I shot the first dragonfly photos of this season. I visited Rands Fjord where the first specimens of Pyrrhosoma nymphula have now emerged.
