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.

Tobin,

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

Wow! Excellent images, Tobin. The first photo, (Enigma centigram - male) is my favorite, and the third image is also very good, IMO. Detail and color are outstanding. Thank you for sharing your photos.
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:

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.

Amazing Work Torben!
Sorry I missed your comment Steve. :redface: Thanks. Always appreciated.

Excellent series, Torben!

But where´s the yellow elegans :smile:

How was Skåne?
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?

Really great shots! You must be a very patient man! :smile:
Thanks Karen. When I'm out there I forget time. So many things going on.:smile:

Those are awesome :)
Thanks Ron.

Elegant and beautiful, Torben! Looks like you are having a great summer with these.
Thanks David. I love being out among the miniature wildlife during summer. :smile:
