Brachythemis contaminata

I bumped into a female Brachythemis contaminata on my photographic outing today. The weather was cloudy and the sun was not hot, and it gave me a comfortable surrounding to snap pictures on this female B. contaminata. Normally female and immatured male of B. contaminata are less intensed in orange colour compared to matured male. B. contaminata is normally found at open pond and lake.

I also in another occasion snap a picture of a male B. contaminata. You may see that the orange colour is much more intensed on the wings and body of the male.
