Acisoma panorpoides

The Grizzled Pintail is a common species, occurring from the Southern Tip of Africa all through Southern Asia up to Japan. But that is quite alright, as it is a little fun species. It likes muddy grassy swamps, where it lives the life of a little aggressor, devouring little insects, but also for instance damsels. While I was observing a male at Xuan Son I caught a glimpse of a Agriocnemis pygmaea from the corner of my eye. So did the Pintail.
