Libellulidae - Lathrecista asiatica

Libellulidae - Lathrecista asiatica (Fabricius, 1798)

Today I went to Bangi Forest Reserve and I spotted this guy - Lathrecista asiatica. It has beautiful red tail but the body is rather blue/grey. Lathrecista asiatica is not as common as Agrionoptera sexlineata in Bangi Forest Reserve. Both these species share the same habitat.
