Phantom Flutterer

The Phantom Flutterer (Rhyothemis semihyalina) is a very beautiful dragonfly that occurs throughout Africa, the Indian Ocean islands, part of the Middle-East and part of southern Asia.

The iridescent purple is fantastic - the close-up photograph beneath this one shows it better although a photo doesn't do it enough justice. I've rarely seen this dragonfly but I was lucky enough to photograph this one right next to my front door. I can sprint for a camera quite fast!
