Red Dragonfly

Took these pictures when this beautiful red dragonfly was perched on the tip of a bougainvillea branch. I think it is probably a Greater Crimson Glider.

Loten's Sunbird - one of the two frequent visitors here, the other being Purple Rumped Sunbird
Got these pictures after waiting for a long time, as the little bird is very restless in behaviour.

White Cheeked Barbet - 3

Got another picture of this beautiful bird last day. See how the bird matches with its background. Unlike Mynas, Flycatchers or Drongos, these birds usually don't come down to the ground. So it is comparatively difficult to spot, as they spend more time between the green foliage.  

White Cheeked Barbet (Megalaima viridis)

Exif: f/8.0, 1/160s, ISO 1600, focal length: 450mm.
