The past week I have spent a lot of hours out in the warm sun hunting dragonflies with my camera. Most time I used in the area just south of the city of Silkeborg. Here there is a lot of lakes and good dragonfly habitats, inhabited by many different species including several rare ones like Cordulegaster boltoni, Orthetrum coerulescens and Gomphus vulgatissimus.

New photos of the following species have been added to the gallery: Orthetrum cancellatum, Aeshna isoceles, Libellula fulva, Orthetrum coerulescens, Somatochlora metallica, Cordulegaster boltoni, Aeshna grandis, Gomphus vulgatissimus and Cordulia aenea.

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.

After almost an entire week of warm summer weather and several successful dragonfly photo expeditions, a lot of new photos have now been added to the site.

During this week I managed to get some very good photographs of four new species:  Anax ImperatorGomphus VulgatissimusOphiogomphus Cecilia and Libellula Fulva. The last three actually at the same spot near the city of Silkeborg.

It was not easy to get these shots, required a lot of patience and sneaking around, but it was well worth it.
