They are on Fly

I spotted this pair of dragonflies in an open pond. I guess they are a couple. The front one must be a female and the back one should be a male then. So, the male is chasing the female...... for mating :)

They are Pseudothemis jorina which could be easily recognised by its yellow/creamy bar marking on the abdomen. Both male and female P. jorina have similar marking. Pseudothemis jorina is a highly active species, and they hardly pearch to enjoy peaceful sun and breeze......
