Larval Emergence - Pseudagrion rubriceps

I showed the grassy drain/streamlet in an earlier entry. The site is a good habitat for Pseudagrion rubriceps. I found hundreds and thousands of Pseudagrion rubriceps larvae in the grassy drain/streamlet. The larvae like to cling on the roots of the plants at the water edge. I managed to record the larva emergence of P. rubriceps..........
