Dragonfly body is about 5cm long. Tail has orange, yellow stripes.
Coastal area of Mljet
I used to see this species a bit north up in Rogoznica. There was a little freshwater stream (really short about 50 meters or so), which prior to sea turned the normally dry ground in marshy area. This was the place were a lot of marsh birds can be found, and this particular species of dragonfly. Never knew which one it was, but it was hard to forget due to its beutifull colouring. Thank you for the ID, and posting your findings here. Anyway, sadly that little marshy pach is now dried up and hotel is being build on the spot. To much of our coast is being ripped off under the guise of tourism.
Thank you for the ID
