Please compare the dragonfly provided in the suggestion link for Neurothemis ramburii with that depicted above in this spotting. Note the difference in the red margin of the hind wings.They are not the same.
From the suggestion link: "Neurothemis terminata is one of the 4 confusing Neurothemis species that easily mixed up by their similar red color and pattern. But the Neurothemis terminate is easier to separate from others by their wing tip pattern. Neurothemis terminate hind wing red area margin is straight and perpendicular to the wing margin." Here is another example of Neurothemis ramburii http://www.flickr.com/photos/bingo5899/8... Note the difference in hind wings. :-)
So very interesting :-) Good captures!
Thanks Liam for the ID.
