Trithemis festiva – Indigo Dropwing

The western limits of the geographical range of Trithemis festiva (Indigo Dropwing or Black Stream Glider, as it’s called in India) just reaches our area: it occurs in Greece on the east-most Aegean islands, on Cyprus, is common in southern Turkey and throughout Asia to northern New Guinea.

The pictures shown here were made in Nepal in May 2018.
