Darter time again
As a true “Kempenaar” I really wanted the Marsh Darter (Sympetrum depressiusculum/Kempense Heidelibel) in my portfolio. It is a highly localized species that only occurs in the “Kempen” (region crossing the border between The Netherlands and Belgium) and appears quite late in the summer season. In previous years I only managed to take some record shots. Luckily, today this male was highly cooperative. The dewdrops are a welcome decoration, getting up early always pays off.
