This photo shows a male red-eyed damselfly on a water lily pad in the Jurries canal in Weerribben national park in the Netherlands, on 31 July 2017. As this blog mentioned, we had arrived in the Weerribben the day before, on 30 July.
On the morning of 31 July, our boat had soon made a left turn from the main canal into the quieter Jurries.
On its north bank, we found the red-eyed damselfly.
And arrowhead leaves.
And flowering rush flowers.
A willow warbler sings.
Yellow water-lily flowers.
Our boat takes a left turn again, into the Tweede Bokvaart.
This April 2014 video is about a canoe in the Tweede Bokvaart.
We pass some of the many small Weerribben windmills.
Just after this Tweede Bokvaart photo, a kingfisher.
A bit further, at a landing, this male black-tailed skimmer dragonfly, and also other males and females of that species, sit down.
We go back.
These European white water lily flowers.
Two marsh harriers flying.
Close to Ossenzijl village, a buzzard flying.
Our boat goes back south. At 17:30, ten snipes flying.
This Dutch video is about the Weerribben-Wieden national park.
