|This picture of a male Scarlet Skimmer is from my archives of last year.|
The scarlet skimmer or crimson darter (Crocothemis servilia) is a species of dragonfly of the family Libellulidae, native to east and southeast Asia and introduced to Jamaica, Florida, and Hawaii. The naiads are commonly used as food in parts of Yunnan, China.
There are two known subspecies; Crocothemis servilia servilia Drury, 1773 and Crocothemis servilia mariannae Kiauta, 1983. C. s. mariannae lacks the mid-dorsal black stripe.

Your red object on green BG looks good.

Another pin sharp image with very good clarity. Lovely capture with such impressive details. It is a wonderful image.
Thanks for sharing!
Ciao Ram, great macro of lovely dragonfly with fantastic wings, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
What a gorgeous dragonfly you have posted today. Love the bright red coloring which almost appears illuminated. The wings are very pretty as well with just a hint of color near their base. I honestly don't believe I have ever seen any here in Ohio with such vivid red color.
Crystal clear image while displaying exceptional detail and nice even lighting. I really like the diagonal turn of it's body which is quite eye pleasing. A tad bit of BG noise visible in top center of frame which can easily be removed. Well done!!
