Dragonfly Head

This is the Yellow Emperor Dragonfly. A closer look to the dragonfly's thorax and head. There are two pair of clean membranous wings attached to its thorax, where are the strong muscle to drive the wings. It has a pair of large compound eyes which covered most of its head. Watching carefully, we can also see its pair of small antenna and three ocelli. Face is yellow with black marking on the labrum. There is the inversed 'T' marking on its frons. Its two large compound eyes are yellowish-green under the sunlight, touching with each others.
