Can't tell you how much research had to be done to find out the name of this really cool dragonfly that we photographed near Bhuleshwar Temple. What a beauty, really! The Ground Skimmer, scientifically named Diplacodes Trivialis, must be a low flyer as the name suggests. That is the fact in fact! For the complete time of half an hour we applied to take these photographs, this Ground Skimmer was close to the surface of a small pond. The time we gave with patience was worth these photographs. Do you like these takes?

The next one is sort of a funny photograph. Look at the front two legs. It seems that the Ground Skimmer Dragonfly is calling for a fight. Remember those calling fighters who pose their forearms exactly the same way when they call for fights?
