    Torben,
    Those are great, I really like the "Ischnura elegans - male" the light green is beautiful.
     
  3. Wow! Excellent images, Torben. The first photo, (Enallagma cyathigerium - male) is my favorite, and the third image is also very good, IMO. Detail and color are outstanding. Thank you for sharing your photos.
     
  4. Torben,
    i don't know HOW you do it
    wow
    these should all be in some textbook

    awesome shooting, sir

    Thanks Paul. I agree that the I. elegance is a pretty dragonfly.

    Thanks Tom. I was lucky with that one. After a few hours with bad luck he suddenly found the right place to sit. To get him to stay I told a few jokes that he apparently though was funny. :biggrin:

    Thanks Greg for your kind words. Always appreciated.
     
  6. LOL at the last capture and comments :biggrin:

    Great series Torbon! I am glad you named the species, in my ignorance I assumed they were all the same... I will have to pay more attention to damsels, and find a good resource for identification.

    Thanks Jeff. Identifying the different species is interesting and adds to the fun.

    Sorry I missed your comment Steve. :redface: Thanks. Always appreciated.

    Hej Jukka. Thanks. Here's the yellow elegans for you. She is very beautiful and unusual.

    I had a great trip. I did see 3 boltonii males but none that perched. I certainly see why you like them. Did see some other species that I enjoyed. Not totally satisfied with the images though. Maybe the sun was too much. I will certainly go back there. It took me 2.5 hours to get there. Not too bad.

    Hi Seneca. Thank for your comment. It seems like dragonflies and damselflies are a "guy thing". Wonder why?

    Thanks Karen. When I'm out there I forget time. So many things going on.:smile:

    Thanks Ron.

    Thanks David. I love being out among the miniature wildlife during summer. :smile:
