[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Neurothemis fluctuans is one of the most common odonate species in Peninsular Malaysia. One will spot this species easily at open ponds. The male is in red colour but the female is rather dull brown/yellow colour. Neurothemis fluctuans quite similar to N. fulvia, but both could be distinguished by the margins of terminal hyaline area of the wings.

Sorry friends, it is almost a month since I last posted and quite late in replying. We are having a month fasting and it is almost over and i managed to steal a time today as it is a week vacation to celebrate our festival after one month fasting.

Bonjour Foozi,

Ciao Foozi. Fascinating coloured pic for the dragonflyu taken from the good POV.


Impressive dragonfly Foozi! Another beautiful photo with excellent composition and fantastic colours.

Hi Foozi,

The stem or small tree is helping to frame the insect. The macro point of view is showing the details and colors of the Neurothemis fluctuans. The afternoon light and the light of the flash are enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

This dragonfly is a colourful creature and despite the similar coloured BG, it stands out quite clearly while clinging to the perch. The dual eye tones are also very well captured in this sharp image.

Hi Foozi,
Very nice capture of this beutiful dragonfly. I love the details and colors of the wings and abdomin. The background is perfect and the stick makes a nice addition. Well done.
