Dragonflies in Gironde, France

Female Keeled Skimmer

These images are a selection of dragonflies and damselflies seen during my family summer holiday in France.  They were taken in the Gironde Departmente in early August.  We did find more species but sadly the photos were not good enough for the blog.  There were also thousands of damsels and demoiselles around the River Dordogne but I just could not risk taking the camera on a kayak!  My decision was justified as I did capsize, so no piccies of Banded Demoiselle.
