Red Dragon Fly

























I was walking to the market and I saw this lil red fella resting on a steel wire by the drain.  Could not resist it and took a snap shot of it.  I wish I had my Nikon with me but for the time being, the phone camera will do before it flew away.  Love the vibrant red and gold bronze wings.  It is a common red dragon fly...quite a big one and waiting for me to take a picture of it :)  So here it is, sharing a random shot for the day !

Scientific Classification
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Arthropoda
Class: Insecta
Order: Odonata
Suborder:   Anisoptera
Family: Libellulidae
Genus: Sympetrum
Species: S. Fonscolombii
Binomial name:Sympetrum fonscolombii
The Red Dragonfly, also known as Red-Veined Darter or Nomad is technically known as Sympetrum Fonscolombii, and belongs to the Sympetrum genus. It is widespread in the southern parts of Europe, and since 1990s, it has also become a common species in the northwestern part of Europe including Ireland and Britain. The behavior and the genetic evidences prove that this species is very much different from the other species of this same genus, and may be replaced from this genus in the future.
