A Stream Glory Damselfly (Neurobasis chinensis) in a 10x 10" frame.

 

A large metallic bronze-green coloured damselfly. Its fore-wings are transparent, tinted in pale yellow with green neuration. Its hind-wings are opaque in brilliant metallic green or peacock-blue according to angle of view. The males quickly flash their wings, displaying the colours to attract females. The colour is produced by interference from the thin surfaces of the wing membrane. This species breeds in forest streams. The males maintain their territories along stretches of moderately fast-flowing streams. Normally found only near the water bodies. Female lays eggs in submerged vegetation, often among root masses.

 

This damselfly species is found across most of Asia.
