2020-08-11 Kalvebod Fælled, Amager, Denmark
Imago. Male. Granathøj.
A lifer. Unmistakable when seen like this. Only found this individual. During a period with very hot southeastern winds.

Imago. Male. Glad to find it again this year, though just this one on this trip. In tall grass away from water.

Imago. Male. The tip of the peninsula, at the edge of the waterhole south of the road just below Naturskolen.
I had been occupied by a Blue-eyed Hawker when I suddenly spotted this animal on the ground. There were several darters around, but I had just taken them for Ruddys, since that's what the ones I checked were. To say that I might have overlook more of this and similar species. Even though it generally is scarce in Denmark. I lost it when it flew up.
An immature male. Cool to see how the yellow wing patch is transmitted onto the ground below it.
