[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture of a male Scarlet Skimmer is from my archives of 2016. The shot was taken with my Sony compact camera.

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.

Hello Ram,
There is no doubt about how this particular species obtained its name, such vivid red color. Once again your compact shows us its ability to create a work of art. Super sharp and clear as a bell. Even under adverse lighting condition it produced excellent exposure of the subject. Great job!!
