    Thanks Alex. I don't know why #5 is not showing. It's been raining here for the past week as well. I just got out a couple of hours today between the showers. Tomorrow they have promised some sunshine with occasional showers.
     
  7. Excellent shots, Torben!

    Agree, #4 is a fantastic shot! L. quadrimaculata shots doesnt get better than that...

    No luck with the imperators?

    Thanks Jukka. I saw about 6-7 imperators today but they are very clever. Don't want their picture taken. I did get one in the grass but nothing to show. I'll try again tomorrow. I also saw a couple of mating C metallica again the shot I got was out of focus and I did get a decent sharp shot of the L pectoralis that is one of our endangered species. I think I going to report that find.
     
  9. Absolutely! It´s one of those so called "EU-directive species" ... That´s how you can make sure your location there remains untouched, when you have them you don´t have to search droppings of Pteromys volans :smile:

    Those are sharp, and excellent caught in the frame, are the pics original or did you edit them?

    #4 is almost the full image. The others are about 80% crops. Resized and a little sharpening in PS CS.

    It's been reported. I saw a couple today as well. They are being chased by the Libellula Quadrimaculata. Also got a couple of shots of the imperator. Not great shots but I got them. Really impressive dragonfly. No flying squirrels in Denmark I'm afraid but you should have some in Finland.
     
  19. Because of those dropping even motorhighways constructions have been stopped :biggrin:
     
  20. Such beautiful shots! I am most encouraged to take shots like these.
    Saturday they did not turn out as beautiful, but I had my TC on the 300.
    I will keep trying though because of such beautiful!!! inspiration.

    So many wonderful shots in this forum!!!!

    Thank you Thank you...
