Common Picture Wing is another dragonfly usually referred as ‘onathumpi’here, as they can be seen in large groups only during Onam season (August – September – October). They are seen during other months also but less in number. Another dragonfly seen during this season is Wandering Glider, about which I had said in the previous post. See that too if you haven’t.
I took these photos a few months ago, but could post them now only...

Wandering Glider is a common dragonfly and can be seen in large numbers during the months of August, September and October. That is also the time of Onam festival in Kerala. So it is also locally known by the name 'onathumpi', although some other species are also called by the same name. ('Thumpi' is the Malayalam word for dragonfly).
