I found this dragonfly in the neighborhood. The red color is very eye catching. I have no information on this dragonfly. If someone could help me on this would be great.

Many thanks to sandpiper2. From his suggestion I found out the following information.
Neurothemis Fulvia (Drury, 1773)
Found in Guandong, Guangxi, Hainan, Hong Kong, Peninsular Malaysia, Lao, Thailand, Indonesia, India, Myanmar
(From WWW.asia-dragon.net)
The particular one here is a male Neurothemis Fulvia.

Great dragonfly shot Jitti, with excellent colors, composition and details.
Good pov and BG.
It will take a little cropping if you what too, but it looks OK anyway.

Bonjour Jitti

Merci et bon week end....JP

A very interestihg capture of a red dragon fly! The wings color is thicker than in other photo. I think this is not present in Europe.
Perfect photographic qualities: focus, color, natural background.

Hi Jitti!
Superb capture of this good looking red dragonfly.
POV, DOF, sharpness, colour, background and framing are all outstanding.

Hi Jitti,
yes this is very eyecatching, I don't think I ever seen a red dragon fly. Wekll captured, good POV and good details.

Hello Jitti,
This is great looking dragonfly. The red colouration is quite striking. I can't help with the ID, for sure it's not any of species found here.
Picture has good details and very good POV and framing. The overexposed twig is a little distracting though.
Overall, very interesting post.

Can't help directly with the ID but if you go to this site they have all the dragonflies in Thailand. hope it helps.


Quite a good shot though it could have been cropped and maybe sharpned just a bit. I saw this species or a similar one when I was in Thailand recently.

Wow, what a pretty dragonfly, Jitti.
I have never seen quite that has so much red all over.
Very sharp image with an excellent composition. The exposure is well handled as well. Good work and TFS> : )

Good picture of a veryy colorfull dragonfly


I like this picture. The atmosphere is interesting and it's a wonderful species. The conditions of light were rather hard and the picture is well managed.

Such a beautiful creature.
Well registered.
Like this composition.
Excellent clarity.
Best regards,

Hello Jitti,

This dragonfly is slightly different from my post. Well captured in full spread wings. Excellent details in natural environment.
