the red darter is always around even in the winter months
I have not seen this species before its quite small and hard to see when in flight. there was a lot about in the wetlands today see http://egyptswildlife2.blogspot.com/
this one is the hardest dragon I have tried to photo its either in the middle of the canal or in a place where there is water but no access to it. it skims over the water back and fro then disappears after a while these next shots are all taken with my 100x400 lens at a distance of about 40ft.
