First Dutch damselfly of 2013


In the Dutch province Friesland people today saw the first damselfly of 2013.

It was a male Siberian winter damselfly. A species, better adapted to winter than most other damselflies.

This is a video about where this species lives in the Netherlands.

This video is called Siberian winter damsel (Sympecma paedisca) crawling in snow.

New book on damselflies and dragonflies in Friesland: here.
