Vagrant darter

So finally at the very end of the season I got one to sit still long enough. The dragonfly, Vagrant darter (Sympetrum vulgatum). In Swedish it’s “Tegelröd ängstrollslända” probably from its brick red color. Luckily there is a Swedish Dragonfly Society with an excellent web page so I could find out the species. Vagrant seems to be a bit of a misfit. After all it can fly! According to Google translate there is another meaning of darters but I won’t go there!

Don’t hold back, spread your wings. Ha de Gött!
