Paragliding Porterville - Red-Veined Dropwing Dragonfly.

The Red-Veined Dropwing and Skimmer dragonflies are both common dragonfly species living in South Africa and can often be found on the fringes of Porterville’s dams and ponds.

Red-Veined Dropwing females are usually a dull orange colour while the males are typically red bodied with red leading wings.

Paragliding Porterville - Skimmer Dragonfly.

Skimmer Dragonflies are strong, fast flyers and are normally seen skimming low over the water's surface. Skimmers mate in flight and the female will lay her eggs while skimming over the water.
