[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I present another male Scarlet Skimmer, Crocothemis servilia, today.
As you can see, the blighter is a lucky survivor from a lethal attack by some predator. A portion of its right wing has been torn off and its abdomen shows a healed injury.
A resident of South East Asia, it is a most commonly sighted species of dragonflies.
Thanks for looking.
