Aeshna osiliensis & co

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by j.ankanpaa, Jul 9, 2007.

  1. Hello!

    There could be already some raised eyebrows... Aeshna osiliensis? ... What?

    Story behind this species goes something like this... There´s three different names used of this species: Aeshna osiliensis, Aeshna serrata and Aeshna serrata osiliensis. Earlier A. serrata and osiliensis were split to be own separate species but nowadays they´re seen as one species. How ever, there´s no consensus are osiliensis a sub-species or not...

    For example Dijkstra´s book use name serrata, in finnish literature the name osiliensis is used...

    Hej Jukka. Beautiful shots.


    I don't think we have that A serrata in Denmark. He looks a little bit like A. viridis without the green. Impressive dragon.

    I was out trying to shoot some C. virgo today but the wind was too much but I'll return to that place when the weather allows. I did get a few shots of the L. dryas. Not as good as yours though.

    all very nice but #7 #10 are the ones I think have the WoW factor. And esp. #7 is perfect!

    cheers, Mark
