Anax indicus – Elephant Emperor

Anax indicus (Elephant Emperor or Lesser Green Emperor) is a fairly large emperor found in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Thailand and Sri Lanka. Confusion is possible with Anax guttatus, which has slightly different yellow markings on the abdomen.

The pictures below were made on the border of Chitwan National Park, Nepal, in May of 2018. The first picture shows a male eating a Pantala flavescens (Globe Skimmer) caught mid-air.
