Man, man, man - Man, oh man (Azuurwaterjuffer - Coenagrion puella - Azure damselfly)

Flanders-inside-mei2007-azuurwaterjuffer

‘k Zag een paringswiel van Waterjuffers, perfecte foto, bij Javga en dacht : zo hangen er hier ook enkele rond, ik zal eens gaan kijken, 10 minuten zonlicht dat moet mijn zich slecht gedragende lichtallergie aankunnen.  Zonnehoed op, waterjuffers gaan kijken.  Ja, ook de mannen heten juffer.  Drie schroefden er rond; steeds op elkaars kop landend met een obscene greep.  Mis, het verkeerde adres, maar even later weer van hetzelfde, geen enkel geheugeneffect.  Waar zijn de vrouwtjes ?  

I saw a mating wheel of damselflies, perfect picture, at Javga and thought : there are hanging around some here too, let’s take a look.  10 minutes of sunlight, that’s something my bad behaving light allergy must be able to accept.  Sunhat on, watching damselflies.  Yes, also the men are called damsel.  Three of them were airscrewing around, landing on each others head with an obscene grip, over and over again.  The wrong address, but some time later they try it again, no memory effect at all.  Where are the females ?

Wow! You are so lucky. Two dragon flies in one shot. Very nice capture. Really nice close up on the second shot.

airscrewing De term "airscrewing" is mij nieuw, maar een schitterende uitvinding die perfect in het kader past dat je hier schetst!

I saw this and thought "Seems this is a popular subject, one on Javga too!". So much detail in this shot, fro the left to the wings and body. Lovely

die vrouwtjes zijn moede van de wiekende escapades van vorige minnaars.....

There was this dream about an angel who was doing something with a beautiful male angel but I did not know the term for what they were doing until I came to this blog. Beautiful photography Hildgerade!

ha, ha !!! This is funny Hilde...! They are quite beautiful don't they?

These are remarkable images! I am yet to catch these critters to anything like this precision . . great studies.

Gepost door: AG | 27-05-07

I like how you have captured them. ... Awesome colours!

Spectacular photos, Hildie! Yes, those look like male blue damselflies. Apparently the females only have a blue ring near the ends of their tails.

I wonder if the males weren't landing on each other's heads trying to scare the others away so when a female showed up, they'd have her all to themselves! Or maybe they were young males, just "practising."

Beautiful, clear pix.

wieken Knap beeld, inderdaad de perfecte foto. Je ziet verdorie zelfs de vleugeltjes molenwieken van de bovenste juffer !
