Come; dance with me!

Long-legged Marsh Glider (Trithemis pallidinervis) Female

A medium sized yellowish brown dragonfly with long spider like legs. They are normally found at grassland and open marshes. They like to perch high at grass blade or bare ends of shrubs with wing slightly pointing up. The long legs are very noticeable at this time.

The male and female have similar marking. However, the face of male is metallic purple but rather yellow white in female.

I saw a lot of them dancing in the wind.

Taken at Kudayathoor, Kerala, India
