[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

The Dragonfly season will start soon and I almost can't wait to see them fly again.

The Vagrant Darter, Sympetrum vulgatum, is a European dragonfly. The species takes it English name from its habit of occasionally appearing as a rare vagrant north of its normal range.



Bald beginnt die Libellensaison und ich kann es kaum erwarten ihre Flugkünste wieder bestaunen zu können.

Die Gemeine Heidelibelle (Sympetrum vulgatum) ist eine Libellenart aus der Familie der Segellibellen (Libellulidae). Diese sind eine Familie der Großlibellen (Anisoptera). Es handelt sich dabei um eine mittelgroße Libelle mit einer Flügelspannweite von 5 bis maximal 6,5 Zentimetern.

Hi Helmut.
You are luckier. In our region spring begins only. Attractive low POV and nice details of the insect. Diagonal composition is also impressive as well as combination of old board and vegetation of the BG. TFS and best regards.

Hello helmut,
exciting view on the diagonal flat composition. I like the amber color that really stands out beautifully. The details are excellent with the lighting so well managed.
