Postcard from south-east Turkey - Odonata

Coenagrion syriacum (a puella look-alike), one of the spring dragonfly specialities in the Hatay region of SE Turkey.

Managed a couple of hours looking at dragonflies whilst in SE Turkey this week, we only looked at two sites but came up trumps with a number of the regional specialities.

Platycnemis dealbata

Trithemis annulata

Brachythemis fuscopalliata

 The splendid Epallage fatime

and last but not least the superb Platycnemis kervillei
