Realenga, Huétor Tajar, Granada Province.

Dragons in the Garden.

Desert Darter (Sympetrum sinaiticum).
I spent a few hours in the garden this morning but as usual I was easily distracted when I got around the pool and found males of Orange-winged Dropwing (Trithemis kirbyi) and Epaulet Skimmer (Orthetrum chrysostigma) which I get very commonly. They were joined by a third insect, a male Desert Darter (Sympetrum sinaiticum) which is only the third or fourth time I have seen the species in the garden.
Epaulet Skimmer (Orthetrum chrysostigma).
