    Hi :D

    you need to use the editing on photobucket to make the picture smaller before you post it.
    If you need any help please send me a pm.

    What are the differences between that and Cordulegaster boltonii Steve?

    Serious question.

    In my opinion externally very little but bidentatus has the little triangle (occipital) behind the eye coloured black as opposed to yellow on boltonii Their habitats are also slightly different I think my specimen had just emerged as its wing were folded back

    Thanks, I don’t have any literature on Dragonflies and I’m really going to have to get some and get studying, damselflies as well.

    Do you net them at all?

    Grande Sauterelle verte, Tettigonia viridissima, Great Green Bush Cricket, femelle??

    I can recommend Collins Pocket guide Insects of Britain and Western Europe ISBN 000 219137-7

    Thanks, sounds good but I need something more specialised, I’ll probably get the Bio tope editions.
