Scarlet Dragonfly

Crocothemis erythraea


An immature Scarlet Dragonfly (Crocothemis erythraea) in Lake Volvi. The photo is nothing special, but I wanted to share it due to the ID of the dragonfly, which could be easily confused with a mature female scarlet dragonfly. Yet, if you notice below the S2 (in the beginning of the tail) you can notice the male secondary genitalia.
