Another beauty on my Wishlist the Clear winged Forest Glory.. (literally like an Emerald gem)
I was at my dream destination searching 'Malabar Pit Viper' & I saw this, halted there to capture this beauty. As I was following it for a macro shot it was moving way ahead & this continued for few minutes after which it gave me like 20-30 secs and it moved again but not away from me but it moved so close that it sat near my knee and was too close for any shot..
Seeing this me and my friend Burst out laughing as the damsel I was trying to be close for macro shots is now so close that now I had to move away from it if want to shoot it ;-)
I Hope I get to see another similar beautiful species known as 'Stream Glory' before someone introduces it here ;-)
''Vestalis gracilis'', or the clear-winged forest glory, is a species of damselfly belonging to the family Calopterygidae. It is found throughout the Oriental region.
