Many thanks John. Possible, but from their spectacular sudden appearance I suspect tenerals. Also, no damage.

What a great macro image! It's amazing to me how you can distinguish dragonflies males and females. Thanks for sharing!

Many thanks Frank-Michael. You're welcome. Sometimes it is easy to tell the sexes apart. Sometimes it is not. Sometimes I even get it right, but I am forever learning!

A terrific shot. The eyes are so clear and the transparency of the wings, showing the detail underneath is wonderful. *
