[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Este Sympetrum está recien eclosionado, tanto sus alas como su abdomen son transparentes. Suelen eclosionar al amanecer, lo cual da lugar a estos colores y contraluces tan espectaculares. Es el momento de su vida en el cual están mas indefensos. Aquí os lo comparto. Un saludo.
