    Regal Advent: An auburn dragonfly alighted on a branch of a young rambutan tree.

    DESCRIPTION

    Spreading about 70 millimeter wings, 45-millimeter length Neurothemis ramburii uninhibitedly soar Asia, taking their way across South Eastern region which includes the farms, ponds, orchards and lowland forests of the Philippines. These dark-red-to-brown-to-orange-winged dragonflies, belonging in the largest family of skimmers, are known as great predators of mosquitoes. Their species are difficult-to-get-close-to, unless weak and immature, along with Neurothemis terminata, their closest relatives.

    Kingdom: Animalia
    Phylum: Arthropoda
    Class: Insecta

    You don't need it but you would love it. But with the surprises in life you have experienced it. Life is tough. Life is fair. Life is sweet.
