Damselflies, spider and young robins


Azure damselfly, 5 June 2015

This photo shows a male azure damselfly (let us hope my identification is correct; there are several blue and black damselfly species, looking very similar). On 5 June 2015, on a reed stem on the bank of a pond in Gooilust nature reserve.

In Gooilust, a swift flying. Great spotted woodpecker and blackbird sound.

Raft spider, 5 June 2015

Near the bank of the Gooilust pond, this raft spider. Not so big for this species, so probably a male. There were lots of algae in the pond. I hope the water will stay clean enough for this spider and other species.

Large red damselfly female, 5 June 2015

There were other damselfly species at the pond too. Like this female large red damselfly.

Near the exit of Gooilust, two young robins on a woodpile. They did not have red breasts yet.

A bit further on the path, a song thrush.
