I like this dragonfly a lot, I have been pursuing her for a lot of time, and now when trying to classify, this is a little difficult, consulting the catalog, me the encounter like a combination between two types these:

1. Libellula (Plathemis) lydia. Common Whitetail (In this case: Black-Blue tail)
2. Brachymesia gravida. Four-Spotted Pennant

(Please: If some of you could help me with the correct classification I will thank it to him a lot. )

The color of their body to be apparently all black one, however, when observing it closely the color it is black-blue. A navy blue one very beautiful, but this to make very difficult to be able to capture with my camera, however, I believe that this it has been a good picture after so many intents.

The stains in their wings, are a great attractiveness, and to give elegance to their flight, I believe that to seem butterfly when it flies.

Ninfa buen momento para captar esta libélula teniendo en cuenta lo rápido que se mueven, me gusta el ángulo de la foto, yo tengo una pagina que las identifica pero es relativa a los Estados Unidos.
Te envié un correo pidiendote una información.

Very nice and unusual shot Ninfa. It looks like its ready to take off.

Hey Ninfa, another from you! Il ike this one alot. He looks very high from the ground. Great view of the wings. Very nice work.

Nice capture and a nice position Ninfa. The colours are very good and he is posing nicely but it seems to be some noise in the background so I tried to remove it in PS - hope it is OK.

Hi Ninfa , have a look at his one Four-Spotted pennant I am fairly certain this is it. Probably a very mature specimin.Nice capture .

Una foto muy curiosa, la inusual prespectiva, desde luego, ayuda mucho. Yo personalmente le bajaria un copo el verde, o haria un recorte mas cercano, pero es muy bonita.

Very good photo of this odonata!
I nerver saw it too.
It has balck and dark blue clours.
Very good details of the insect's head!

Amazing POV. This is good to see and rather amazing you got it so clearly. When trying this sort of thing, they always get away. Good composition of an interesting looking dragonfly.
