First macro shot with my new Nikon D7200.

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[7] and Crocothemis servilia mariannae Kiauta, 1983.C. s. mariannae lacks the mid-dorsal black stripe.
