An Amazing Dragonfly Week

Before you know it this years dragonfly season will be over, so I take every opportunity I can to get out with my camera.

Last week was actually pretty good with several warm and sunny days, so I went to Rands Fjord as so many times before. I also visited a new place called Fårbjerg just south of Skanderborg. The main reason for going there was to photograph the dragonfly “Aeshna viridis” or Green Hawker which is a rare species here in Denmark.

I succeeded in getting some very good shots of the male, and I also managed to photograph the female even though is was not easy. The female is very good at hiding, and in most cases it spotted me first and flew away.

I have updated the August 2011 gallery with the new photos.
