Hi isinkwe

Your Kruger Mosquito is a Red Basker (Urothemis assignata) male

This is a great photo as I was able to count the cells in the wings to confirm the ID

Thank you for the kind comments and welcome back.....appreciated :thumbs_up:

LP was very quiet and it is may be that time of the year.........but there is always something to see and photograph... :clap: :clap:

a Fish Eagle landed on the left side and the local Fish Eagle chased him away....may be it is the juvenile from December.... :hmz:

Light was not good but still a great sighting.. :dance: :dance:
