Coeliccia albicauda

I spotted many Coeliccia albicauda at Lentang Recreational Park, and this gave me plenty of opportunity to find the mating pair. I took a few shots of this mating pair (in tandem pair). The female of C. albicauda is bit different in colour compared to the male. The dorsal thorax marking of female is also different from the male.
