It has been several years since I last photographed the large and beautifully colored Cordulegaster boltonii. So, this weekend I decided to take a trip to one of its few habitats here in Denmark. At this location there is  a small stream with clear spring water which is the favored type of habitat of its larvae.

The weather was sunny and warm but quite windy. The stream itself was completely sheltered from the wind by the surrounding vegetation and four to five Cordulegaster boltonii were constantly patrolling the stream and resting in the vegetation. So, perfect conditions for getting some good photos which have now been added to the gallery.
