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 and several different species had already emerged. Especially Cordulia aenea was very abundant but I also came across several Pyrrhosoma nymphula and a few Libellula quadrimaculata and Brachytron pratense.
