I was doing some data cleaning on my noteback and found this pair of forest dragonly images which I thought it is worth sharing it here.
Tholymis Tillarga (Coral-tailed Cloudwing) is a common forest dragonfly species. The male body is reddish in colour including adbomen. Both wings are transparent with the high wing with white and brown on the base. The female is less attractive with yellowish in colour and its hind wings have translucent brown near the base. A good time to photograph this species is during morning and early afternoon when they are less active and are usually seen hanging on to the side twigs. It is not difficult to get close to it but once you scare them off, they are unlikely to come back on the same perch or in the vincinity. Spotted this pair perching together at Macrichite Nature Trail more than 8 mths ago.
