Went out this A.M. to a different spot than I usually go for dragons. Came back with a few...

Hi Paul!

You obviously have wonderful places there to see different species... And you have handled the situation pretty fast and pretty darn nice: like #3... how much better shot of a Twelve Spotted Skimmer you can have than that... (no need to aswer, really :smile:)

Excellent work Paul. You sure see a lot of different species. Your pics also show how different an invironment they chose to rest. Do you have an ID for that newly developed green one in #7.

Looks as if you found a good spot. I especially like 3,4, and 5, although all are nice. Thanks for sharing them.
Tom,
The spot I tried today will take a bit more time and patience. The dragons are there but they don't seem to want to roost. The only one who really cooperated was the Twelve Spotted Skimmer, I was able to take my time and pick the shot.

The #5 shot was interesting, there was a gravel pile behind me and when I turned around this little guy was staring at me, as if challenging me. I was able to get 3 frames before he took off. This is the best of them.

Jukka,
We have several ponds and gravel pits, as well as several rivers. I have only worked 2 of the spots, the place I was at today, which is a wetlands preserve, and a set of small lakes about 4 miles from my house.

I know there are at least 2 or 3 species that I have yet to get at the small lakes... but I'll get'em sooner or later. Not sure how many species there are around here, but there are quite a few.

Thanks for the compliment....

Thanks Torben,
I never realized how many species there were around here until I started them.

I have not identified the green one in #7. I am going to have to dig a bit deeper.
