Green Dragonfly

A Green Marsh Hawk Dragonfly (Orthetrum sabina) sitting on the stem of Tithonia plant in front of my house.

On a Tulsi plant . . .

Green Marsh Hawk Dragonfly

A very commonly seen dragonfly here and is comparatively larger in size. But due to its color which matches with the green plants, it is sometimes a bit difficult to spot . . depends on the place where it is. It sits on the same place for along time.
