Picturewing - Rhyothemis variegata

Another beautiful dragonfly. I originally was looking up R. fenestrina and came across this one. And this is what a few sites had to say on this species and any subspecies:

"It is a slow flier and hence less trickier to follow and take pictures! The variegations come in different combinations."

- Dave's Garden

"A beautiful dragonfly, looks like a butterfly. It is called 'Onathumbi' in Kerala India."

- Tarique

And pictured here are 2 of the variations.
