  1. Great shot. Can you please indicate the country? Posted 4 years ago
    1. Added geotag, sorry missed it yesterday, using tethering to post and the upload was acting weird yesterday.

      Removed the species ID since it strongly implied Asia which I am nowhere near.

      1. Not sure about Double-Ringed pennant species ID but it's definitely the closest match of already-identified species and looks good compared to other images I found in Google. Posted 4 years ago
      2. Thanks Jeremy, I was also doubtful on the other ID. Can't confirm if this one is correct but we have a few odonata specialists that will likely see this image soon. Posted 4 years ago
