Pantala flavescens, the globe skimmer or wandering glider, is a wide-ranging dragonfly of the family Libellulidae.
It is considered to be the most widespread dragonfly on the planet.

A small swarm has arrived to my home in Chennai.
From where? I don't know..
Maybe from Himalayas...
Maybe even far north...
By next month they would make a pitstop in Maldives and then proceed to East Africa.

As their name "Wandering glider" suggests, they migrate long distances (12000KM - 18000 KM)
