Sympetrum fonscolombii

The Red-Veined Darter is one of those Southern European species which has been extending its range Northwards. It's a medium-sized dragonfly; in fact, for a Darter it's quite large and heavy-looking. In our area it's very common and occurs in huge numbers, e.g. at some nearby rice fields. Sympetrum fonscolombii is a very pretty, easily recognisable species; besides the male's deep red colour and red wing-veins (both of which are yellow in females and immature males), and a whitish patch on the side of the male's thorax, the most distinguishing feature is the blue underside of the eyes.

Hello Sergio,
I love to view red Dragonflies, probably because we don't seem to have many in my area. Captured in an attractive pose and showing excellent upper body detail. Nice blurred BG with just the right exposure!!
