El tigre / The tiger

 

Este año he podido disfrutar, como ninguno hasta ahora, de este maravilloso y portentoso animal. Lo he podido fotografiar posado en diferentes días y en varias ocasiones a lo largo de una rambla de la que supimos esta primavera.

Cordulegaster boltonii (en la foto un macho), popularmente conocida como "libéllula tigre", suele patrullar largos tramos de cauces estrechos, volando bajo y lentamente, sortenado las envestidas de machos de otras especies que velaban por un trozo de terreno a lo largo y ancho de la rambla. A menudo se posan en la vegetación ribereña, momento que hay que aprovechar para intentar fotografiarlos.

 

This year I have been able to enjoy, like no other so far, this wonderful and marvelous animal. I have been able to photograph him posed on different days and on several occasions along a ravine that we learned about this spring.

Cordulegaster boltonii (in the photo a male), popularly known as "tiger dragonfly", usually patrols long stretches of narrow riverbeds, flying low and slowly, dodging the envestida of males of other species that watched over a piece of land along and width of the ravine. They often perch on the riparian vegetation, a moment that must be taken advantage of to try to photograph them.
