Black-tailed Skimmer (Orthetrum cancellatum) Female

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Black-lined Skimmer, Orthetrum cancellatum, is a European dragonfly.

The male has a blue abdomen with a black tip and transparent wings, and the female has a yellowish brown body with black zigzag marks along the abdomen and the transparent wings. This species has expanded its range, assisted by the creation of gravel pits which give it the extensive open unvegetated areas it prefers. It was first recorded in Great Britain in Essex in 1934.

Komen deze nu allemaal nog uit je juwelenkist Erik? Mag je dan wel achter slot en grendel bewaren!

Prachtig scherpe foto! Mijn complimenten hoor!

Groeten van Ria

Hoi Erik, ik ben ook een libel met heel mooie kleuren tegengekomen, weet jij daar misschien een naam bij?
