Blue Dasher- Brachidiplax chalybea ♂

The beautiful Blue Dasher is a common dragonfly found near ponds and drains. The eyes are usually reddish green.


I suppose this is an adult male; the orange colour on older males may become faded, making the thorax become entirely blue.


* Found this dying dragonfly at a toll plaza and decided to try out some focus stacking. The dragonfly was not harmed during the process :)
