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.

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.
