Red Tailed Dragonfly

Dragonflies with red tails are the most beautiful and this is one among them - Asiatic Blood Tail (Male). My last post was also about a dragonfly - Green Dragonfly. This one is also from the same place where I spotted that green one.

These photos were taken when it was perched on a Tulsi plant in front of my house. It was easy to take these snaps as it sat on the same place for a long time.

Red Tailed Dragonfly

A multi-colored dragonfly having colors varying from red to blue. This makes it easily noticeable. Maybe this one is the most attractive dragonfly I have seen.

It is a good flier and likes sunny atmosphere to come out .
