No Fish, Prawn Also Can

A Hokkien saying but oh so apt. Where have all the creatures of the forest gone? Have they all gone on vacation? Cause if they are around I don't see them.
During major droughts like this, I will settle for anything I can find. Like this dragonfly with bumble bee colors. Don't gasp! I know it has a proper scientific name but they are all such mouthfuls. I even took an extra 30 min detour just to see if the route I've not walked in sometime will yield anything. I found a small black damselfly but because of its size and where it was sitting I couldn't get a good shot. My fault since I dumped the external flash in favor of a lighter set-up. It also means that I'm going to have to make a trip out again to find this damselfly and get a better photo.As I was approaching the end of my detour, this little fella showed himself.Okay, the little prawns that popped out weren't bad at all.

Hi Shawn, It could be. I'm not sure hence I didn't name it.
