Russet Percher Lemon Pansy Underside Striated Heron Red Flanked Bluetail In Forest Red Whiskered Bulbul On Coral Tree
Russet Percher This was probably the easiest species to photograph - long perching times and quite striking colours compared to the background.

Changeable Lizard Male Breeding This Lizard was really out in the open and larger than others I have seen of this species. He paused on the step and then was gone.

Orange Dragonfly From Below This Dragonfly is hard to identify. It might be a Russet Percher (recently emerged).

Red Helen I was happy to see a new to me kind of large butterfly. The day was a bit cooler than last year so not as many insects were out.

Great Egg-fly In Bright Light This is a somewhat shaky identification - I believe the white spots on the wings are either overwhelmed by the blue or just worn off. I have a poor photo of the underside of the wing - it better matches (but still worn) Great Egg-fly.

In this species the male and female don't look anything alike.

Blue Tiger At first I didn't realize there there were a variety of "Tiger"'s - Black with light colours. The reserve had a sign showing a few of the species - Ceylon Blue, Blue, Dark Blue, Glassy and more. I tried harder to take photos of each one I saw.

Common Tiger I saw four different kinds of "Tigers" today - characterized by the dark black stripes on either a light or orange background.

White Dragontail These were quite common in the day - we saw them in both locations, but they never stopped moving! Only late in the afternoon did they stop to feed, but they often kept beating their wings even when they standing on their legs.
