This was quite a coup, a definite lifer for me and one which made Mick´s day too. However it was not long before he spotted something even better, a Yellow Clubtail. Another first for me and I think a first in Malaga Province for Mick. It was a solitary insect so we were lucky to get quite decent shots of it.
The Dainty Damsel to the left is one of many we saw later at another site. Other species seen include Blue Emporere, Epaulet, Keeled and Southern Skimmers, Violet and Orange Winged Dropwings, Copper Demoiselle, Scarlet Darter and the very beautiful Small Spreadwing which Mick captured superbly with his camera. By this stage of the afternoon I was beginning to feel a bit of heat exhaustion, so we agreed to call it a day and head off for home. I had thoroughly enjoyed being out in the field again and look forward to more wildlife adventures quite soon.
