Joco of http://morememes.blogspot.com had asked me whether there were more photos of the red dragonfly. Yes, of the one on my header. These are the ones I haven't used before but of the same dragonfly taken on one of those oh-so-dragonfly-moments! You see when they are gorging on a mosquito, savouring each and every bite, they're loath to move and that's when I get my lucky shots!:)
This is the Red Grass Hawk dragonfly/Neurothemis fluctuans. This species is found from China across south-east Asia and in India. They are found near water bodies. And below are the ones in a duller shade of maroon though I haven't compared enough Google images to be able to come up with their names!
Now that the warmer season is well on its way, I'm sure it's going to be a feast for the eyes! I'm hoping to take tons of photos this year. The sight of these beauties, coupled with all the other garden wildlife that I photograph makes the heat of Summer, a little kinder.:))
