Nová zásadní kniha pro seriosní vážkaře – Exuvie evropských vážek

A new and truly essential book for european odonatologists - Fotogids Larvenhuidjes van Libellen by C. Brochard et al, KNNV Uitgeverij, 2012. It looks so perfect that one has to just regret that it is not written in English which may limit some readers incl. myself :-(.

Lesklice: sedovky

Dawny and Brilliant Emeralds (Codrulia aenea and Somatochlora metallica) are very common dragonflies, often encountered flying endlessly along a shore, but very seldom seen perching. I have taken many many DIF photos of them but today I present those of sitting ones. Not that spectacular as in flight, but - dare to say - much rarer, at least for me. Read the rest of this entry »
