[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Red Dragonfly, Crocothemis erythrea, is our most common dragonfly. It is known form Africa thru the Mediterranean region, and into central Europe. This specimen, about 40 mm long, is a young male, as you can tell by its legs, just turning red. It posed for me in just the right light, I would say.
