Not so long ago, I discovered that there actually is a lake very close to where I live, which is the habitat of the relatively rare species Aeshna viridis. So during the past week I have visited this location almost everyday on my way home from work.
The Aeshna viridis is very shy, hard to get close to, and has a tendency to rest high up in the trees. Although this makes it difficult to photograph, I have been lucky to get within shooting range a couple of times. The resulting photos have just been added to the gallery.
