Discoveries at Bassa d'Oles, Spain
16 July 2014
When visiting Bassa d'Oles with our dear friends Noushka and Patrick we were in the company of two dragonfly experts and realized how woefully inadequate is our knowledge of these fascinating creatures. They are enchanting and we always pay attention to them, and even though our knowledge is not great, we at least have a little greater knowledge of the species we find locally.
I do not have a guide for the dragonflies of Europe so all but one of the pictures below will go unidentified. Please help with identification and I will add the title to each picture.
The credit for these pictures by the way should go to my wife, Miriam. It was her patience that garnered these results.
|Yellow-winged Darter Sympetrum flaveolum|
|Common Blue Damselfly Enallagma cyathigerum|
|Four-spotted Chaser Libellula quadrimaculata|
|Common Grasshopper Chorthippus brunneus|
