Photographing Ophiogomphus cecilia

Late summer has been really good in Denmark this year with many warm and sunny days. Last week I took advantage of this and drove to a for me familiar location, but one I haven't visited for several years. It's right next to the river Gudenåen…

Photos of new species added to the gallery

This Saturday I drove by one of my favorite dragonfly locations close to the small town Old Rye which is the habitat of several relatively rare dragonfly species like Gomphus vulgatissimus and Libellula fulva. It was a warm, sunny and windless…

More Photos of Cordulia aenea Added

I have just added new photos of the Cordulia aenea to the gallery. This species is very abundant this time of year and most are still immature adults that haven't fully gained their distinctive colors yet, especially when it comes to the eyes…
