These two photographs show the fast running main stream of the Drôme at a place where a slow flowing back water has been created.
After this gap in posting on my blog I am a little rusty in managing it. How could I have omitted the identity of the dragonflies that I saw with Jean-Pierre Choisy?
I sent the photos, shown below, to Jean-Pierre and he has had them identified as follows:
"Crocothemis erythraea: the red. I thought it was this species but was not sure. Details in English: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scarlet_Dragonfly
Orthetrum coerulescens: the blue. I thought it was that kind, without being certain, and no idea of the species name. Details in English: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keeled_Skimmer"
