Sympetrum pedemontanum
Banded Darter

The Banded Darter is one of our prettiest and most recognisable dragonflies. It's a small, Central and Eastern European species. Sympetrum pedemontanum males have a deep-red abdomen, pinkish-red pterostigmas and a dark-brown band running through the front and hind wings (which gives the species its common name). The females have a yellow abdomen, their pterostigma is pale yellow and the wing bands are a slightly lighter brown. In Italy the species occurs only in the North; its scientific name is presumably derived from the region of Piemonte.

Hola Sergio.
Exelente foco, gran nitidez y hermoso fondo

Ciao Sergio,
due splendide macro, forse preferisco di poco quella in workshop, entrambe comunque eccellenti per mostrare le caratteristiche di questa specie, in entrambe ali fantastiche che rendono unico questo Sympetrum, in entrambe le immagini bellissimo il taglio compositivo
Grazie e complimenti
Buona domenica
Ciao Maurizio
