A Close Encounter - Rhyothemis plutonia

Rhyothemis plutonia is a rare dragonfly species of Peninsular Malaysia. In 6-7 years of field experience, I have only spotted two individuals at two different locations. A few days ago, I had a very close encounter of R. plutonia (my second time to bump into an individual of R. plutonia). Of course, I made countless shots on this male R. plutonia. Taking photograph on black dragonfly is always a challenging task, and most of the photographs ended up as bad shots. Nevertheless, I did make some satisfied shots (on my own stadard :)).
