Dragonfly called "Libellula angelina" which is Scientific Name;

*Luckily we could find Rare Dragonfly*
I whimsically opened the home page of the Nature observation park, I luckily found that we could observe "鼈甲トンボ";  literal translation in Japanese can be "dragonfly with tortoiseshell design". My husband got SO exhibited as he found from his book that this one is endangered species. And prohibited to catch by the preservation law.  Naturally, Observation Center was closed and we could only walk outside.
All the pictures were taken by my husband.
This tiny dragonfly about 40mm is among the reed field. 
I was so surprised that he could find some and take pictures. 

Below is the different one called Libellula angelina found on a same day.

*His most recent work*
It was funny that he started making this one and proudly said;
"I made this one imaging this species."  ;-)
Far back of the reed field, there was this Thrush looking lonely;

Thank you very much for stopping by ;

I cannot imagine how people all over the world dealing with this restricted situation!!!
