A long time since I posted here, and I haven't even got anything new to show. Here a photo though from June 2009, Xalapa in Mexico:


Canon 5D, Sigma 150 + 1.4
f/10m, 1/200 s, iso 1600

Read about my dragonfly trip to Mexico here:

Erland,

That is a nice shot of a Promachus robber fly (probably P. bellardii); great lighting & color! I very much enjoyed the photos of your Mexico trip (one of my favorite places!). Interestingly, your 'dragonfly friend' Rosser Garrison is also my friend and former colleague; I'm recently retired from the Calif. Dept. Food & Agric. -- where Rosser still works.

Cheers,

Eric

Eric, thank you very much for the species (genus) ID.
This was the first time i met Rosser, he is very friendly and an authority on Neotropical Odonata. It was a great experience to visit Mexico, and although I've seen a few of the species before in Texas, most I saw was all new to me.
Rosser has done a book on all American dragonflies, dealing with each genus (I got that book during the visit), and he expect to have one similar ready this year about the Damselflies.

Erland, welcome back! I enjoyed your travelogue also. Great fun to read about the traveling and eating and visiting, as well as seeing the pictures. Many thanks!

You've got to love the colors in this! Surprised Looks more like a "Tango," than dinner for one. Very Happy
