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.

Black tailed skimmer

There was several males but I only saw one female. She was there for a brief moment so I was lucky to capture her. For the males I was lucky to capture one still airborne. With a shadow beneath it.

A video from youtube showing a mating sequence. That looks soooo uncomfortable.
