However, in southern coast the species frequently inhabits slightly polluted nearly standing waterbodies, such as golf courses' water obstacles, garden ponds and old gravel pits.
Flight period: June-July
Males such as this have become a more common sight in southern coast during recent years. Sulka Haro
