Lentang Recreational Park, Pahang

I had an outing today to Lentang Recreational Park, Pahang. The recreational park is located by the Karak Highway about half an hour drive from Kuala Lumpur. I tried to record the dragonfly species in the recreational park. I started to work from 9.30am to 3.30pm, and the weather was not good (cloudy the whole day with accasional dizzling). I managed to record 16 species belonging to nine families.
