Male Scarlet Skimmer
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|My recent trekking venture into the Himalayas with my school boys took us over a variegated terrain and varying climatic conditions. On our return journey by our school bus, we stopped at a filling station at Chamba -- a considerably hot place in summers. While the driver was busy getting the gas, I took the opportunity to shoot a few dragonflies flitting around the place. Today I am posting the picture of a male Crocothemis sevilia I shot at that place. Hope you will like it.|
The Scarlet Skimmer or Crimson Darter (Crocothemis servilia) is a species of dragonflies of the family Libellulidae, native to east and southeast Asia and introduced to Florida and Hawaii.
Unfortunately, that is all the information about this species available on Wikipedia. The shot was taken hand-held from a distance of about one and a half metre.
