May 2024 Dragonfly Status

May 2024 has almost passed and it has been a relative warm and sunny month, so great for hunting dragonflies. I have mostly been visiting the local lakes at Sebberup watching the early season dragonfly species emerge quite rapidly within a few weeks due to the warm weather. As usual Pyrrhosoma nymphula and Cordulia aenea […]

Dragonfly Season 2024 Has Begun

Spring has been cold and wet this year but finally as May has arrived so has the sunny and warm weather. Even though it is early in the season I went out with my camera today hunting dragonflies for the first time this year, and it did not take long before I spotted a few Pyrrhosoma […]

May and June 2023 – Some Great Dragonfly Months

May and June 2023 have passed and they stand out as exceptional warm and sunny months with many great dragonfly photography trips.

I only spotted one Leucorrhinia dubia which I wasn’t able to photograph, but it turned out that Orthetrum coerulescens was actually quite abundant at this […]

A Visit to Ryebro

The weather has been very sunny and dry for several weeks now here in Denmark and it looks like it will stay so for a while. Perfect conditions for dragonfly hunting, so I took a day off from work, grabbed my camera and drove to Ryebro. This is a beautiful location I visit every year […]

Another Visit to Sebberup

Another warm and sunny May weekend meant another visit to the lakes at Sebberup. Compared to just a week earlier Cordulia aenea had become even more abundant. They were everywhere, many of them resting in the vegetation. Also Libellula quadrimaculata was quite numerous and I expect even more will emerge in the coming days. I […]

Start of Dragonfly Season 2023

This weekend I had the chance to go out dragonfly hunting for the first time this season and went by Sebberup, a location I know very well. Spring has been quite sunny and cold, but during the first weeks of May it has finally got warmer. Turned out this season was already well under way […]
