Looks to me as a Crocothemis species. Problem is that there are two of those (Crocothemis erythraea and C. servilia) and I have no experience telling them apart.

The White-legged Damselfly is endemic in Spain and France. Not in Greece. Besides it is not blue....

This is Platycnemis pennipes

Dit is ook een Smaragdlibel.. Veel Nederlandse libellenkenners zijn te vinden op waarneming.nl. Je waarnemingen daar aanmelden helpt ook de verspreiding van soorten in Nederland in kaart te brengen.

Overigens worden er op waarneming.nl ook andere soortgroepen actief besproken en genoteerd.

It is a dragonfly and it is probably a Sympetrum species, but I know little about non-European dragonflies. If you post it to the Global Dragonflies and Damselflies mission, somebody might be able to help.

Blue eyes, that makes it Red-Veined Darter.

Ruddy Darter, because it has totally black legs and the snout is so much like Ruddy Darter

Bruine korenbout (Scarce Chaser) , because no other (European) species of dragonfly has such eyes. Also on photo #3 you can see another mark: the dark spot at the end of the wing (not the pterostigma).

This is NOT the Scarlet Dragonfly but it is the Red-veined Darter.

taka.ita Vagrant Darter Dragonfly

Not a Ruddy Darter, because a Ruddy Darter has totally black legs. I would say Sympetrum vulgatum.
