Every year is the Dutch Dragonfly Study Day. It was nice to be among people who share the same love for dragonflies. People who sometimes are a bit strange. For example someone brought a lot of empty larval skins to give them away. I loved the box full of Aesha viridis. It is a rare species, but maybe not so rare if one knows where to find the skins.

Some pretty damselfly photos

Just to show to the world some of the Damselfly photos I made this year. If you are really impressed: click on the photo and order a print. But it is fine with me if you just enjoy looking at them here.

Red-eyed damselfly
Female Red-eyed Damselfly (Erythromma najas). The rain left some drops on her wings.

Green Emerald Damselfly
Female Green Emerald Damselfly (Lestes viridis). The sunlight shines on the grass from behind.

Emerald Damselfly
Male Emerald Damselfly (Lestes sponsa). Holding on to grass on a very windy day.

Common Winter Damselfly
Female Common Winter Damselfly (Sympecma fusca). A new generation has emerged. Winter Damselflies get through the winter as an adult, reproduce early in spring. The last of them can be seen until half June. Then the new generation emerges halfway July – this is one of them.
