Identifiering av trollsländor är svårt. Jag gör mitt bästa men det är inte säkert jag har rätt.
To ID dragonflies is hard. I do my best but I might get it wrong. So, don´t take my word for it.

This is strange in a way as, at that particular place, 2 years in a row I ahve only seen oen female. No male. The female seem to lay hundred of eggs but there is only one adult I see. This is  a very small waterhole in the forest. Because of her coloring you can only see her when she moves.

I finally have both sexes.  The male is HERE 

The color on this one confused me a lot even if I know both sexes most often had different colors.
I got help from a group on FB to ID her: Trollsländor. This is a Swedish group but there might be english a well. Who knows?  A great place to get ID help. Just wanted to mention it.

 Guldtrollslända - Cordulia aenea - Downy Emerald


Flickslända - Damselfly
Damselflies (suborder Zygoptera)

Spring started early this year but the dragonflies woke up late. Maybe becauce of cold nights and then some rainy days.  But now they are finally here. The images of the damselfly is the same one but I don´t dare to be more specific about the species.

This one looks rather warn out so maybe that is why I could catch it on the tree. Probably at the end of it´s season. A new species for me. :)
