Genus: Brachydiplax

Brachydiplax is a genus of dragonflies in the Libellulidae family, subfamily Brachydiplacinae (Dwarves). Members of the subfamily are very small to medium sized.

The species of Brachydiplax occur from India through China, Southeast Asia, and New Guinea to Australia.

These are often common dragonflies. Males of most species are usually pale to mid powder blue. Females have shades of brown, sometimes with neat patterns of spots on the abdomen (eg, D. chalybea flavovittata).

Like most Libellulids they tend to perch on sticks, reeds or stones near water, flying out to catch insects then returning to their perch.

Special thanks to Batu in helping with the ID.

Hello Ganesh,
two beautiful pictures of this dragonfly which most probably is Brachydiplax chalybea from
the family Libellulidae as you suggested also. However, there is a similar looking species,
Aethriamanta gracilis which I can't exclude for sure.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Ganesh,
Very sharp images and interesting pairing to show location and close-up. Novel idea and quite useful. Thanks.

Hi Ganesh,

A nice collage of these two views of the pretty blue dragonfly. It's interesting to see the flower he has settled on. The details on the close-up are excellent.

Hola amigo,
fino collage, selecta captura y detalles,
bonito trabajo,

I like the colours on this dragonfly you captured in Singapore, Ganesan.
I am quite satisfied with the bigger version because it gives us a better impression of this insect I have never seen in our country.
It is a well composed shot with wonderful details and colours.

Hi Ganesh. A double post nicely captured in sharp details. I like the water lily with tall frame on the left as well as the tight framing on the right. Well done and best regards. Jusni

Hi Ganesh

A terrific collage with this superb species presented in these two ways.
I really like both photos - one that presents this dragonfly in its habitat and the other one up close - with good details about your subject.
The poses in which you caught the d-fly are also terrific - the obelisk on the left being so well visible. Wonderful details and gorgeous natural colors complete this lovely presentation of yours.

Bravo and TFS
