Anax parthenope

Back at the same pond as yesterday. I found out that it’s called oo-ike (big pond) – here’s a map. It was a really hot day (35 degrees C) so it felt good to be wading almost waist deep in the water. Kept trying to get photos of the beautiful gin-yanma and eventually succeeded in getting a semi-decent shot of one on the wing.
