Happy to get my first sighting of the Sultan (Camacinia gigantea), taken on 30 August, 2020. This was at the Kranji Marshes, Singapore. I knew it was the Sultan from its distinctive size and colour but had to wait until it settled to get the shot.

The Sultan is a rare local dragonfly that looks like the local Common Parasol dragonfly, but is twice as large.

@sohkamyung what a wonderful colour, and I love the detail of the wings that you captured

@GwenfarsGarden Thanks. 🙂 The details tend to stand out because of the red colour. That also applies to the red wings of the smaller Common Parasol.
