Male Black-tailed Skimmer
Whilst editing the next batch of bird photos, from our recent trip to Northern Greece, I thought I’d feature a few of the dragonflies we saw. I’m reasonably confident about the identification but, as a relative beginner to this interesting taxa, I’m always happy to receive comments and corrections. Not surprisingly I failed to photograph a goods number we saw but of those I did, I added at least seven to my slowly growing list of European ‘drags’.
Female Black-tailed Skimmer
Scarlet Darter or Broad Scarlet
Green-eyed or Norfolk Hawker
Beautiful Demoiselle, festiva
and final, though not strictly a dragonfly, Antlion
Next blog will be the birds of the Rodopi Mountains and Evros delta…
