Vagrant Emperor

This is the vagrant emperor female dragonfly photographed on Rodos a few days ago. They are strongly migratory and mostly occur in the dry regions of Africa and Asia. The scientific name, Anax ephippiger refers to the characteristic blue saddle at the abdomen on the male shown below in a slightly out of focus pic. Sorry!
