aspetto l'aiuto di Maurizio per l'identificazione di questa specie..forse sympetrum.....grazie Maurizio!

Sympetrum sanguineum
Ruddy Darter

The Ruddy Darter is a common, small dragonfly which is widely distributed throughout Europe, although it's largely absent from Northern Scandinavia and Southern Iberia. As its scientific and common names suggest, Sympetrum sanguineum's most characteristic feature is the male's blood-red abdomen, which is clearly club-shaped and at its widest on S7-S8. As in so many other dragonfly species, immature males share the same colour as the females, which in this species is a deep, golden yellow. The legs are all black.

my mood today is for Al Jarreau 1976 -Take Five

Ciao Sergio,
spettacolare la resa delle ali, ottima macro in tutto e per tutto.
Bravo e complimenti!


hello sergio my friend, wonderful, this is absolutly perfect, thanks for showing us
kind regards

Hi Sergio,

Sharpness and the reflections on wings are excellent. OOF background is a bit busy and distracting. Regards. Ali.

Ciao Sergio,
non č facile stabilire la specie di questa femmina di Sympetrum, personalmente penso si tratti di striolatum, non avendo macchie gialle alla base delle ali, ma l'inquadratura non fa vedere molti altri elementi utili al riconoscimento quali le zampe, gli occhi, il torace lateralmente, ecc., comunque sia č un buon periodo metŕ giugno per lo sfarfallamento di striolatum; bellissima immagine con ottima definizione e magnifiche ali traslucide.
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio
