Blue Basker Dragonfly – Urothemis Edwardsii – Male and Female

The blue body and basal wing-spot of this medium sized dragonfly are diagnostic. It is very common and spends much of it’s day perched on a twig, basking in the sun- hence the name. As with most of the libilulidae family of dragonflies the female is less colourful.
