Damselflies - Cretan Bluet

Coenagrion intermedium
The first (and only up to now) Cretan Bluet that I have seen. Cretan Bluet is an endemic species in the island of Crete, Greece. According to the "Field Guide to the Dragonflies of Britain and Europe" of Dijkstra & Lewington, the flight season fot this species starts from mid May, but I made this observation on March 18 of 2013!

Long Lives the Emperor - Anax imperator

Long Lives the EMPEROR (Dragonfly)

The Emperor Dragonfly (Anax imperator), one of the most fascinating dragonflies! I've been watching these gyus flying around for over two year now, and finally I saw one standing! It gave me the time to take only very few shots before flying again. Amazing animal, very big dragonfly.

Erythromma lindenii male

Photographing in the field and then deep search into the books to identify the species! This is another new species for me. It's a male Goblet-Marked Damselfly (Erythromma lindenii).
