Some dragonflies in SE Cyprus

Below are some images of dragonflies seen during the week in the Cape Greco area.  During the intense midday heat, our attentions turned to dragonflies which were plentiful around water and in drier areas as well.



Scarlet Darter - fairly common - Crocothemis erythraea


Small Skimmer - just a couple seen - Orthetrum taeniolatum


Male Violet Dropwing in the obelisk position Trithemis annulata


Female Violet Dropwing - very common - Trithemis annulata


Male Red-veined Dropwing - scarce  - Trithemis arteriosa


Male Lesser Emperor  - fairly common - Anax parthenope


Slender Skimmer - locally common - Orthetrum sabina
