A Green Marsh Hawk Dragonfly (Orthetrum sabina) sitting on the stem of Tithonia plant in front of my house.
On a Tulsi plant . . .
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.
Abdomen have black and white stripes, thorax is green-yellow with black lines,eyes are greenish black, head is green-yellow, legs are also black and the wings are transparent- these are the things I could note from this beautiful dragonfly.
Family : Libellulidae
