Dragonflies and Damsolflies in Brazil 2011

Between November 11 and December 7 2011 I spent eco-toristing in REGUA (Reserva Ecolˇgica de Guapiašu),Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. During this period I had the pleasure of studying and photographing a few dragonflies and damsolflies. I here present a few photos.
When I have found common names for the species I have used this name. When I have found no common name I have sometimes invented names in order to facilitate my work. If so, this is stated after the common name used.
