[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Kanliköy Göleti (Dam Lakelet) is located east of Lefkoşa (Nicosia). Before noon, Mustafa Sözen and me visited this area. When Mustafa took some flying Teal (Anas crecca)ducks, I took flying dragonflies. Most of them tried to lay.
I am not sure its species. So, I dont write species.
We captured photographs of some Little Grebe, Teal, dragonflies, Warblers, and Wagtail in there.
Unfortunately a large part of lakelet, as similar as most water sources of both of north and south Cyprus, dried. So, many animals escaped to other areas.

I tried to take photographs of flying dragons in honey moon. I hope it can be acceptable. Best wishes from Cyprus.

Great in-flight capture of a pair of Symptrum (fonscolombi?) in copulo captured pretty sharply, from a good POV and with good timing.
