Many new species of dragonflies and damselflies are emerging right now as the weather becomes warmer and summer comes closer. Another trip to Rands Fjord and several Libellula depressa were now to be seen. Libellula depressa looks sort of a big wasp or bee (especially the female), with its yellowish broad abdomen, and its wings have a characteristic very dark brown wing base. Libellula depressa often returns to the same favored perch from where it hunts for a prey, which also provides a good opportunity to photograph it.
With some patience I got a few good photos which have been added to the gallery. I also spotted a few Pyrrhosoma nymphula and Coenagrion pulchellum.

Yesterday, I drove by Rands Fjord to see if more dragonfly species had emerged. There wasn’t much sun and the wind was quite strong, so not the best conditions for photographing dragonflies.
Still, I spotted a few Cordulia aenea, and many Pyrrhosoma nymphula and Coenagrion pulchellum. I also got a few photos which have been added to the gallery. I expect many more species to emerge very soon.

This weekend I went out to my favorite local dragonfly location Rands Fjord, hoping to spot the first dragonflies and damselflies of this season. The spring has been very cold and windy, so my expectations were not that high. However, I was lucky to find the first few specimens of Pyrrhosoma nymphula and also got a couple of photos which have been added to the gallery.
