Hello friends in TN.

I spotted this Slender skimmer perched on an IDed mushroom on my way to the office after my coffee break.

Slender Skimmer is yellow to greenish yellow in colour, with black markings. There are the yellow and black strips on the body sides and brown spot at base of hindwings. Male and female look the same. As its common name implied, its body is slender.

Another view of the slender skimmer in my WS.

Help with mushroom ID is appreciated. Thanks for viewing!

Salam Jusni,
wow..wow...now you are getting nearer to the fungi master.
such an excellent capture with an odonata to it.
Very well seen with complementary element shot.
I like this soft mushy fungi.


Hallo Jusni,
beautful and interesting capture of the Slender Skimmer perched on a fungus (sorry, i can not help you about the ID), very good sharpness and colours.
Best regards

Wow what a unexpected triple capture friend Jusni! Very good day to you? Interesting presentation, no doubt, the presence of the dragonfly makes the image far more appealing in my opinion! Lovely !!!

Excelente trabajo Jusni.

En nuestra latutud no estamos a acostumbrados a ver una libélula posada sobre un hongo.
Al menos los hongos mayoritarios de los bosques, aparecen en una época del año en que
ya no vueln los insectos... de ahí la curiosidad de esta toma. Tampoco es habitual en TN
ver insectos sobre hongos.

Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.
