Camacinia gigantea

I have been observing dragonflies for the last six years in Peninsular Malaysia, I only bumped into Camacinia gigantea at two locations. So, C. gigantea is definately very local in Peninsular Malaysia. Taking photos of C. gigantea is always chanllenging as it does not perch frequently. Nevertheless, I finally managed to get close to C. gigantea to take some decent photos. Looking at C. gigantea is just like looking at a very large Neurothemis fluctuans. The site where I spotted C. gigantea also showed the presence of N. fluctuans. So, there you go with the scene of big and small "Neurothemis fluctuans" flying around.
