Dragonfly: Yellow-winged Darter

Yellow-winged Darters

I am not an Odonatologist nor have I the deep knowledge about the odonata species but I try hard to look in the internet source to find the closest matching darters and compare them with my own photos.

An almost unmistakable darter, red-bodied in the male, with both sexes having large amounts of saffron-yellow colouration to the basal area of each wing, which is particularly noticeable on the hind-wings. Other darters species may have limited yellow-orange colouration near the extreme wing-bases, especially in females, but never so extensively as in this species.
