Default New Dragonflies

Just some simple not so good pix from today (it was windy).

#1 and #2 nymph of an unknown dragonfly, maybe White Legged Damselfly (Platycnemis pennipes.

#3 and #4 hatching dragonfly ( I think White Legged Damselfly (Platycnemis pennipes))

#5 White Legged Damselfly (Platycnemis pennipes)

I hope you will enjoy the pix.

Cheers,

Stefan

Good shooting Stefan, only #3 shows any sign of movement.

Excellent capture!!! I love the eyes in #4! Did you watch the entire transformation? How long did it take?

Saly,

thanks a lot.

Unfortunately I arrived just a few moents before #3. I tried to capture the whole transformation, but it happened on a very unfavorable place and it was very windy, so nearly all shots were blurred. I think the complete transformation lasted around half an hour.

Cheers,

Stefan
