[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It has turned quite hot now here in Jammu. The temperature is hovering around 40 degrees Celsius. This Sunday morning, I went around my residential area looking for insects and found the first male Scarlet Skimmer of the season. It is a bright red dragonfly and lends its name to the species. The females are golden yellow in colour. Given below is the scanty information from Wiki:

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.
