Fulvous Forest Skimmer male & female - eNidhi India Travel Blog

Fulvous Forest Skimmer male & female

Happened to click photos of these insects- I didn't know their names until Vivek Yadav identified them on facebook.

These are Fulvous Forest Skimmers. The Pinkish one is male and orange coloured one is female

These two were sitting comfortably on a wire in a forest like are at our native place. Above two closeup shots were taken using 300mm lens. I could have moved couple of steps further for a better shot, but risked alerting the skimmers. With 55mm, below was the maximum zoom possible, which obviously is not enough and not interesting.

  1. Really looks beautiful upclose. Esp the wings and the patterns on them! Colors are no doubt awesome.

    Kudos to your keen observational skills and the extra lens on the cam :)

  2. Beautiful captures. The second one was magical! :)

  3. Those wings are so pretty. Nice shots, Shrinidhi.
