Hello friends in TN.

This is my first red dragonfly upload for TN. I'm not sure about the species of this darter. Help with the ID is highly appreciated.

Thanks for viewing!

Thanks Ivan, George and Ram for the ID suggestions.
Ivan and Ram agreed on male Crocothemis servilia (Scarlet Skimmer) and George suggested that it is Red Basker(Urothemis assignata). Both the suggested IDs are pretty close with the colors and the wings markings.
Thanks again and kind regards.

Hola Jusni

Preciosa composición de esta dificil libelula, por ese color rojo intenso, que cuesta bastante cogerle el punto a la fotografía con el sol. Un buen POV y excelente captura.

Un saludo de Antonio

Hello Jusni,
A great capture of a dragonfly, especially as this is your first!
The semifrontal POV was taken with nice sharpness and colours that show this is a male Crocothemis servilia presented in a pleasing composition.
Thanks and kind regards,

Hello Jusni,
fantastic capture with wonderful details and focus.
Excellent composition and very good clarity.

Lovely shot with good strong colors perfect brightness and fine dept friend Jusni! This lovely dragonfly in my opinion is the gorgeous Red Basker(Urothemis assignata).

I agree with Ivan, Jusni.
Since I consider myself as a kind of specialist on this species, I must say that this is a wonderful capture of the male Scarlet Skimmer.
Well done and TFS.

Hello Jusni,
Very beautiful photo in great contrasting colours. The red is really eye-catching. Very sharp with fine details. Excellent POV and composition.

Ciao Jusni, lovely dragonfly with fantastic red color, good POV, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Jusni friend,
Interesting (and unusual) POV for a dragonfly, but I think you've done a a great work. Indeed, this shot is very eloquent! Nice coora also. May be a bit shot od DOF, I think better with f/8 in your DSLR camera lens.
Regards, TFS

What a fantastic worm red my friend.Impressivr choice of point of view to see the best of the eyes and a great contrast between the red and the green in background.Very well done,have a nice day and thanks,Luciano.

Hi MF Jusni,

Impresively awesome and clear macro of this Scarlet skimmer taken from a wonderful vantage point. Its overall front body and eyes are very sharp, and you have it nicely positioned off-center in the shot.
TFS and have a nice night!


Totally cool. You should see how good this looks on an iPad! Love it Jusni. Perfect dof here and superior angle!
