    several new dragonflies appeared in AL Qudra lake 1 Feb 2017- id needed

    Yesterday I was in Al Qudra Lake by mid-day and was there up to 3.30 pm
    I have seen a few new dragonflies in the lake that I have not seen there before.
    May I request all to help me ID these?

    Today is world wetland day 2017
    Best wishes to all

    Hi Reza,
    Just saw your post about dragonflies in Al Qudra.
    from top left to down right, I would suggest the following IDs (from a quick look):
    - possibly Anax parthenope
    - Crocothemys erythraea
    - presumably Trithemis annulata
    - Sympetrum fonscolombii. male
    - Sympetrum fonscolombii, female
    - Diplacodes lefebvrei

    Cheers,
