Post Swiss Emeralds
Hi Folks,
Back from a trip to Switzerland with a few pics of the native species. Quite difficult to find good ponds for Dragonflies there, most water bodies are too big to get close to the action. But managed to get a few shots. A bit of research on my pics when I got home show what appear to be two different types of Emerald Dragonfly - the Alpine emerald and the Brilliant Emerald, which were a joy to see so late in the season, still looking fresh. Sadly some of the other species were a bit more elusive, but here are a few pics from the week:
