A Green Skimmer Dragonfly (Orthetrum Sabina)

>> Jun 25, 2011

I captured this dragonfly in a rice field inside a fishing place. I didn’t notice it before; since the rice plants around are also green. This kind of dragonfly is a very common one here. I wasn’t able to take a close up photo; the dragonfly was in the center of the field. I didn’t want to make my shoes dirty, hehehe.

Dragonflies are characterized by big multifaceted eyes, two pairs of sturdy transparent wings, and an elongated body. They have six legs, but most of them can’t walk well. Dragonflies are included into the fastest insects in the world. It’s interesting fact, right?

in Indonesia that's called Capung.

I've seen a red winged a long time ago when i'm visit my gradma house at Jogja :)

They have such beautiful, lacy wings. I don't blame you for wanting to keep your shoes dry!
