Campo de Golf Channel, Malaga Province.

An hour with some special dragons.

Dark Spreadwings (Lestes macrostigma).
On our way to do some shopping in Malaga area I managed an hour in a ditch with quite a few Dark Spreadwings (Lestes macrostigma) but they were very flighty and difficult to get some shots of.

In the same area there were loads of teneral Red-veined Darter (Sympetrum fonscolombii) and quite a few Iberian Blue-tail (Ischnura graellsii) of different colour phases.
