The second male I saw at the park, a few meters from the first. It was very windy and I was exhausted so I didn't shoot long but there were a good number of odonate species at these little ponds.

I saw C. elisa, C. eponina, and this species perched all along the tips of tall reeds, pretty much demonstrating their namesake, appearing as tiny colorful "pennants" along the pond's edge.
