[Richtlijnen voor opmerkingen] Opmerking van de fotograaf
Here is another male Scarlet Skimmer captured this morning in the Lotus pond of my school.

The scarlet skimmer or ruddy marsh skimmer, Crocothemis servilia, is a species of dragonfly of the family Libellulidae, native to east and southeast Asia and introduced to Jamaica, Florida, and Hawaii.

It is a medium sized blood red dragonfly with a thin black line along the mid-dorsal abdomen. It breeds in ponds, ditches, marshes, open swamps and rice fields.

There are two known subspecies; Crocothemis servilia servilia Drury, 1773 and Crocothemis servilia mariannae Kiauta, 1983. C. s. mariannae lacks the mid-dorsal black stripe.

Hello Ram,
Another fantastic shot of your beautiful Scarlet Skimmer. Exceptional detail and bright vivid red colors. The side view pose shows off its features very nicely. What is interesting about this species is that the entire dragonfly includeding its eyes, are the exact same color.
