  1. hi Chinmoy. I find both this photo as the other one concerning the red grasshopper very interesting. Can you share the location where you took these photos? Do you know which species they are? Posted 5 years ago

''Ischnura senegalensis'', also known variously as common bluetail, marsh bluetail, ubiquitous bluetail, African bluetail, and Senegal golden dartlet, is a widespread damselfly of the family Coenagrionidae.

It is native from Africa, through the Middle East, to southern and eastern Asia. The species is found in slow-stagnant or leisurely flowing water bodies and tolerates both disturbances, salt and pollution but is absent from intact forest areas.
