Dragonfly (19) - Diplacodes Nebulosa

Family : Libelluidae
Common name : Black-tipped Percher
Status : Uncommon
Location : Chestnut Ave

This is a small-sized dragonfly species and I have only seen it once at Chestnue Avenue. The male is dark blue in colour with small dark patch at the tip of its wings.  The female has light yellowish in colour, quite different from the male.
