The Living Forest (77) : Ruddy Darter (male)

Some time ago I uploaded a shot of a female Ruddy Darter.

Today I show you a male specimen.
As you can see there’s a huge colour distinction in this dragonfly-species between the male which is strong vivid red and the female with her yellow-brown colour.

Dutch name : Bloedrode heidelibel (mannetje)
German name : Blutrote Heidelibelle (männchen)
Latin name : Sympetrum sanguineum

A big thanks to Anca Silvia B. for the kindly nomination of this picture.
