丹頂斑蟌 orange-faced sprite (pseudagrion rubriceps)

以為入秋才是賞蜻蜓和豆娘的時間。過去週末,竟然在濕地環境也遇到不少。

this past weekend, went to a wetland area, thought of catching migratory birds before they head off for spring; and i saw quite some dragonflies and damselflies.

這對丹頂斑蟌 正在交配。caught this pair of orange-faced sprite, also commonly known as saffron-faced blue dart.
