This dragonfly is called "oni-yanma".in Japanese.
It means "very large dragonfly like giant ogre"

Oni-yamma is the largest dragonfly in Japan, and the total length reaches 100 millimeters. Sound of flying is like propellers.

Hi Ucchie,
Truly a magnificent predator, captured with a lot of detaiul and some hidden strength. Thanks.

Hi Yasushi,
I like your dragon very much, very interesting and beautiful. Also with good quality. A good catch, thanks for sharing.
I wonder that you haven't wrote a single critique to anybody since now - but you like to receive them?!? Sorry, but that's not the idea of this site. Perhaps you also like to spend some time for the other members now?
