[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A new species for me taken at the top of the Black River Gorges. I was not able to find one at rest with a better background - must try harder.

I would be pleased to know of a field guide that covers dragon flies and their kin in Mauritius/Mascarienes

Hello Geoffrey,
A fine looking specimen from your region of the globe. Focus appears sharp and colors are very beautiful. We don't always have a choice of where our subjects decide to perch, we must only make the best of the situation as you have. You might want to check out this link for a field guide.
