Here’s another fascinating dragonfly spotted on one of the boardwalks at the Hong Wetland Centre.

After trawling the internet to identify the species I’ve discovered it masquerades as the Slender Skimmer, or Green Marsh Hawk dragonfly.

I prefer the latter name, as it is happy to eat other dragonflies.
