Very nice, Borg. The ones that come to you are the best. (Except when they come and sit on your right shoulder):

1. Today, Blue-eyed Damselfly tandem. A rare species in The Netherlands (but not very rare where I live).

2. Today. Black-tailed Skimmer. A very common dragonfly.

3. Day before yesterday. Great Green Bush Cricket

4. Day before yesterday. Scarlet Darter

Either I was very lucky or I´m getting good at this... Three different hawker species within an hour, all at the same location less than a mile from home.

Top to bottom Migrant Hawker, Brown Hawker, and Southern Hawker.

Well, I used to. But after taking more than 10,000 they all look the same. Also, I´ll not be posting as many pics as before, except maybe if I picture a new (to me) species.

Stunning photos as ever Ron. :hatsoff:

This one was putting on quite a show, bouncing up and down arse first into the water, i presumed it was laying eggs  :dunno:

It didn't really care i was there, it had my phone shoved in its face for a few minutes and didn't bother

On the spotters´ website, my dragonfly pics score maybe 25 hits on average.
This is an exception. Posted in 2013, it was rated 5 stars by 7 people and it just broke 1,000.
Technically, it´s not a very good pic. It is low res, and not sharp enough.

A Brilliant Emerald flying above its mirror image. The water is dead still, and also reflects clouds and some bushes.
