Skimmer and Shimmer

Thought I’d relieve that spider overload with another dragonfly.

23 Dragonfly 5 Yellow+Green

This is again on the beachside, adjacent to those Prosopis shrubs that I was talking about in the previous post. The beach was abuzz with dragonflies, and of many different varieties at that.

This is a female Indian Ground Skimmer, or the Diplacodes trivialis. A hat-tip to the Nerdy Birders for ID help, an excellent website on the birds, butterflies and dragonflies of India.


Metadata Canon Powershot G11. ISO 80. f/4.5 at 1/60 second. Edited using Picasa 3.8. Taken in December 2010 at Keelamundal on the Gulf of Mannar coast, Tamil Nadu, India.
