Rhyothemis phyllis (Yellow-barred Flutterer)

found in Cambodiafound in SingaporeSeeing this colourfully winged character for the first time was quite a thrill. It seems to me that there is a greater tendency towards coloured wings in the region than I am used to in the European arena. This looks as though it is trying to mimic a bee.

Our earlier few encounters were a little frustrating with a lack of settling and posing but eventually, both Cambodia and Singapore’s Central Catchment NR came up with the goods.
