Genus: Somatochlora


Somatochlora is a genus of dragonflies in the family Corduliidae. Members of this genus are medium-sized dragonflies with dark bodies and a metallic green lustre. The abdomens of males are distinctive, with the first two segments bulbous-shaped, the third constricted, and the rest of the abdomen club-shaped with a straight ending. The exception is S. boisei, which is shaped like a Cordulia species. There are usually two crossveins between the hind wing base and the triangle, where Cordulia have only one crossvein.

Ciao Roberto,
personalmente non ho ancora fotografato e visto questa libellula, molto fotografata da Sergio, macro con una composizione molto bella con le piacevoli foglie dal colore delicato che fanno da sfondo, ottima nitidezza nella parte a fuoco (manca un po' di profonditą) che mette in risalto in modo spettacolare il disegno grafico delle ali, eccellenti POV e composizione.
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio

Wow ... This is an extraordinary capture. Beautiful composition with fine details and natural colors.
Congratulation!

Hi Roberto. This dragonfly has a beautiful green/gold body. Taken with fine detail and sharp focusing. Your use of the light has given natural colours. Well taken TFS.
