Published June 6, 2014 in Field Notes

Here is the juvenile of the Solitary Eagle, quite different from the adult as you can see.

Wandering Glider in Gujarat, #India

Published May 29, 2014 in Field Notes

As temperature rises in Europe, so do the dragonflies. This one, however, was seen in december, but in a warm part of India. Wandering gliders are numerous throughout the tropics and North America, but absent in most of the Paleartic. It’s a really beautiful species. Al subir las temperaturas, también lo hacen las libélulas. Esta, sin embargo, la vi en diciembre, pero en un lugar caluroso de la India. Pantala flavescens es numerosa en los trópicos y Norteamérica, pero ausente en la mayor parte del Paleártico. Es una especie bien bonita. from Flickr http://flic.kr/p/nKvqsQ via IFTTT
