Dragonflies are adorable insects, and I often see their behavior that often makes me smile. They seem to like being picky about where they perch.

You will see a dragonfly perched on a twig, then they fly away for a moment but then come back again to perch on the same place. So, when you approach them to take photos, they may fly away for a moment because of fear. But you don't have to move from your position, because it will surely come back and perch there again.

This is one of the dragonflies that I captured, Neurothemis terminata or commonly known as the Straight-edged Red Parasol. It's a species of dragonfly in the genus Neurothemis. The thorax, abdomen, and tail are orange, with transparent brown wings. These characteristics indicate that this is a female. This species is often found in Indonesia, peninsular Malaysia, and Japan.
