|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Strange are the ways of nature. This morning, I was astounded to see two different species of dragonflies playing musical chairs on the perch of a water lily bud in the lily pond on my school campus. I have seen different species of dragonflies eating each other in the struggle for survival, but this one was a pleasant surprise. I took a ton of pictures of these two and here is one of them. The red one is a male Scarlet Skimmer and the green one is a Slender Skimmer. Hope you like it.|
The Scarlet Skimmer or Crimson Darter (Crocothemis servilia) is a species of dragonfly of the family Libellulidae, native to east and southeast Asia and introduced to Florida and Hawaii.
Orthetrum sabina, the Slender Skimmer or Green Marsh Hawk, is also a species of dragonfly in the family Libellulidae. It is found from southeastern Europe and North Africa to Japan and south to Australia and Micronesia.

Hope you are doing fine. What an excellent photo! The two together look so beautiful. The dark background is adding to the colours and overall beauty of the shot and I wonder why there are no comments. Perhaps the friends are busy somewhere but at least I am here to show I like this shot a lot because of its merit.Great! Thanks a lot for sharing, take care,
