The Spine-tufted Skimmer is also called the Crimson-tailed Marsh Hawk, and Brown-backed red Marsh Hawk which can be seen widespread in many Asian countries.

I found these two Dragonflies having a go as they fly around when I was staking out some Flycatchers. While waiting, it occupied my time. Procreation in wildlife is very important. The animals require proper season in which the temperature right and food supply is abundant. A swarm of Dragonflies like these can spawn thousands and yet few will survive.
