Enter The Dragon #5

Here, to finish this mini-series, is the Asian Tiger...the biggest of Asian Dragonflies. It flies at high speed, and is aggressive in seeking mates and food.

It looks a vicious rascal, Ray
Ray: A very capable predator, Frank...fortunately it prefers to snack on spiders rather than humans.
A great photo for your finale!
Ray: Thank you, Eizabeth. I was very pleased to find this one in our garden, as they are usually seen only around ponds where they make lightning fast circumnavigations looking for spiders or mates..

Looks very solid and determined!
Ray: This is a very competent insect, Bonnie, and its dominance of the insect world rivals that of the Preying Mantis.

It looks like it is 'war-painted'... ready to attack. Also the way you captured it looks like it is determined to strike. Love this picture very much.
Ray: They do seem to be aggressive critters, Astrid.
Zoom Zoom. Talk about aerodynamic, Ray, and perhaps also a bit acrobatic!?! smile
Ray: Capable flyers, Ginnie, but more inclined to speed than fancy wind-work.

I suppose it's fair to say anything that has black & yellow stripes is something to be wary of..
Ray: I think that might be a fair rule for insects, Chris.
Je me suis vraiment regalée avec cette série ..
Merci Ray
Ray: Ensuite, je me sens satisfait de mes efforts, merci, Claudine.

I have the feeling it has discovered some interesting mate or food.
Ray: It is always watchful, Philine, and seems voracious.

Fabulous! I like its pose. It appears to be about to zoom off between the Y-shaped twig.
Ray: They don't usually rest for long, Alan, so I was pleased to get a couple of good images.

I don't know how these things are stable without a small propeller on the back Ray.
Ray: I doubt they are any more stable than Boris or Donald, Chad...perhaps all could use a small propeller attached to a butt plug.
I hope it is not pretending to be a bumble bee with those colours.
Ray: I think it is making a statement...something like look at me and quake!
Sturdy looking character.
Ray: Very strong...fast in the air, and aggressive about hunting and mating, Brian.
hes a handsome one Ray... great series....petersmile
Ray: A very handsome brute, Peter. Thank you.
A real corker!
Ray: A most impressive insect, Tom.

He has that landing space all to himself. No contenders. And he is ready for take-off as soon as a gal flies by.
Ray: Not fearful nor shy, Louis.
