I posted the other day about an unusual insect I saw in Saraswati Garden. At the time, I thought it was a butterfly or a moth but I couldn’t find a photo on the internet that was anything like it.
Today I went to the Tulasi Farm in Amritapuri and there was an area that had MANY of these insects. In watching them fly, I knew they weren’t either butterflies or moths. They moved so fast I couldn’t see them well, but I thought they might be dragon flies.
When I looked on the internet, I discovered there are 91 species of dragon flies in Kerala. I was able to find a photo of one that looked similar to what I had seen.
