A photo diary from the Languedoc region of France, particularly around the vicinity of Lamalou-les-Bains, my previous home town in France. Please see my new blog "Moorlands and Peak".

Orange-spotted Emerald Dragonfly
Orange-spotted Emerald Oxygastra curtisii
This species of dragonfly has been extinct in the UK since 1957 but is still quite easily observed in Southern France. This photo was taken near the River Orb in Hérépian, a favourite walking place for us (and swimming place for our dog, Button).
