Leucorrhine douteuse

Family: Libellulidae

The White-faced darter or small whiteface is a small dragonfly belonging to the genus Leucorrhinia in the family Libellulidae. Its flight period lasts from May to August. It is found in peat bogs from northern Europe eastwards to Siberia. In southern Europe there are populations in some mountainous areas such as the Alps and Pyrenees. In Great Britain it is rare and local with the largest population in the Scottish Highlands. (Wikipedia)

A rarely shown dragonfly-species. I have seen it in a bog-area in the Valaisan Alps.

Yours is simply beauty. Shapes and colouration are very attractive. I also like fine DOF, great sharpness of the dragonfly image and very nice a bit blurred surroundings. TFS and warm regards.
