This is a relatively small forest dragonfly. The males have many colour forms. The red form male is one of the most common forest dragonflies. My first sighting was at a small stream perching on a hanging branch on 8 Feb 09 at about 3 pm. The breeze, the thin perch as well as the low light condition made it difficult to get a sharp image. I was fortunate to spot another one at Sime Track on 19 Feb 09 in the morning and this time it was resting on a firm branch allowing me to take a better shot of it.
The females also have different colour forms. The following images are some of the colour forms. I have yet to see the red colour form of the female which is said to be rare.
